Pet Friendly

Lafayette is not only the Happiest City in America for humans, but it’s very pet friendly for your four-legged companion. There are leash-free dog parks where they can socialize, trails where we can sniff out the local flora and fauna, restaurants where they can chow down with you, and many hotels where we can sleep comfortably. There’s even a Mardi Gras parade dedicated to dogs! See below for a list of pet-friendly places to visit in Lafayette, LA.
