The Gateway to Cajun Country
And the Gulf of Mexico.
Visit Bayou Lafourche and experience the bayou life. Just 45 minutes from New Orleans, this coastal destination is a place where passing a good time is an every day part of life. Our laid back lifestyle is evident in the smiles you'll see and characters you'll meet, with hospitality as historic as our sites and museums. Travel "Up the Bayou" and "Down the Bayou" for our Cajun food, festivals and fishing.
