Allons - logo full color

Allons™ in Cajun French means “come now” or “let’s go” which perfectly sums up what Lafayette Travel's new bi-monthly inspiration journal is all about. Allons™ serves as a travel resource for visitors listing over 300 tourism-related businesses in Acadiana under accommodations, attractions, restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and transportation. Allons’ editorial content shares the stories behind the food, music, culture, and history at the heart of Cajun & Creole country, serving them up with a heaping helping of witty dialogue and first-hand photography. A calendar of events, highlights of seasonal festivals and area maps are included as well.
