Side Trips from New Orleans Sights



Vermilionville Review

Directly behind the Acadian Cultural Center, this living-history village re-creates the early life of the region's Creoles, Cajuns, and Native Americans, focusing on the late 1800s to the early 1900s. On select days visitors can see a blacksmith demonstration or watch weavers at work. There are exhibits in 19 Acadian-style structures, including a music hall where live Cajun or zydeco music is played on weekend afternoons. A large rustic restaurant serves Cajun classics. Check ahead for live cooking demonstrations from the on-site cooking school.
