Southwest Louisiana is often referred to as Cajun Country or Acadiana. It reaches from central Louisiana prairies through cypress swamps, bayous, and basins to embrace the Gulf of Mexico. The Atchafalaya River and its swamp define much of the geography. Cajun French and English are freely spoken in the close-knit small towns and communities. The area offers boating, fishing, a web of wildlife refuges, state parks, and feast of Cajun foods: dirty rice, gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish, boudin, andouille sausage, crabs, fish, and shrimp.

All cities and towns of Southwest Louisiana boast excellent restaurants, while the unofficial capital, Lafayette, offers art galleries, theater, music, medical centers, and shopping. Both Lake Charles and Lafayette are home to state universities. Like most areas in Louisiana, smaller towns lie in close proximity to larger cities. Laid back and relaxed, Cajun Country vibrates with life. Where else can you find a street sign that reads "Alligator Crossing"?
