Allons - logo full color

Allons™ in Cajun French means “come now” or “let’s go” which perfectly sums up what Lafayette Travel's blog is all about. In addition to serving as a travel resource for visitors it also shares the stories behind the food, music, culture, and history at the heart of Louisiana's Cajun & Creole country. The content on the blog is served up with a heaping helping of witty dialogue and first-hand photography along with event and artist spotlights, weekly playlist via Spotify, and deep dives into some of the most time honored Cajun & Creole traditions all written by locals.
