Acadiana - Cajun land

Recommended
The Cajuns (from the French word Acadien), one of the United States' most famous ethnic communities. They live in Acadiana, extensive marshlands of sugar cane and rice fields, and are fiercely protective and proud of their rich cultural heritage. To find out more about this fascinating region and the strong cultural identity of its inhabitants, spend a weekend to get a feel for the festival atmosphere of its towns and take a boat trip into the Bayou and lakes to gain an insight into the region's capricious geography.
