Fodor's Review

Most of the structures at this re-creation of an early-19th-century bayou settlement were moved here to create an representative "village." They actually represent a broad range of Acadian architectural styles, and the rustic general store, blacksmith shop, and chapel are replicas. The park is on 10 wooded acres, with a meandering bayou crisscrossed by wooden footbridges. Each house is decorated with antique furnishings. The weeks in December before Christmas bring "Noel Acadian au Village," with later hours, musicians, food, and buildings covered in lights.
