Baton Rouge or Lafayette

After spending a few days over Xmas in New Orleans we are looking for a place to spend New Years.

Should we look at Baton Rouge or Lafayette? Or is there even a better option 3?

Lafayette is the heart of Cajun Country and we've stayed about 10 miles east of there at Cajun Palms RV Resort and really enjoyed the area.

As a Cajun from Lafayette, you know my vote! As said, it is the Cajun capital of the world. Good food and music. Although we live in South Carolina, I spend a lot of time there. If you have any questions on any local music/food options PM me.

Lafayette!! In BR the 2 state capitols are nice and Spanish Town is interesting, LSU vet school by the levee can be fun if you want to see a cow with tupperware lid covering a hole in it's stomach sort of thing.


But Lafayette is the real deal. The Gateway to South Louisiana. St John Cathedral, Acadian Village, Turducken from Hebert's Specialty Meats. Close to Mamou and Fred's Lounge. And Billy's Boudin in three locations. The Billy's Boudin in Opelousas is across from an old Acadian village. Common houses, not big plantations.

You cannot imagine the joy of some Billy Ray's Fried Boudin Balls. Yearning for more will keep you awake at night. And great Lebanese restaurants.

I've lived in South Louisiana most of my life. I'd go to Lafayette long before Baton Rouge. The food is better there than it is in New Orleans/Baton Rouge. You can get real Cajun food in Lafayette. It might not be good for you, but it sure is good!


Baton Rouge and New Orleans are more of a tourist trap than anything else really. It's nice to go once and get the experience, but it's not worth a second trip IMO. Bear in mind that I-10 between Lafayette and Baton Rouge is pretty bad. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Thank you all for your suggestions, we have selected Cajun Palms RV Resort with a stop at Avery Island for a tour of the Tabasco factory on our way through.
