Travel Writer Policy

As you prepare to journey to South Louisiana's Cajun & Creole Country, get ready to discover an area so unique you'll think you are in another country. Lafayette is a city where the old meets the new at every turn, where French is still spoken, where strangers are treated as family and friends. Tradition and culture run through Acadiana like our many bayous and swamps.
