Side Trips from New Orleans Sights


Acadian Cultural Center

Acadian Cultural Center Review

A unit of the National Park service, the center traces the history of the area through numerous audiovisual exhibits of food, music, and folklore. Be sure to watch the introductory film, which is a dramatization of the Acadian exile. Clips from the 1929 silent movie Evangeline are incorporated in the film; film buffs will love it. Ranger-guided boat tours of Bayou Vermilion take place March through June and September through November in a traditional Cajun boat.
