Not only does March host the final Mardi Gras parades of the season on Fat Tuesday (and other events back this year -yay!), but nature celebrates with its own parades of gorgeous splendor! You’ve got to experience it in person! Schedule your visit along with a swamp tour (or bring your kayak) to get up close and personal!
Continue the party with the Krewe of Dionysus as they are back this year with the Irish-Italian Walking Parade on March 19 along with Basin Brew Fest showcasing craft beer from Louisiana Breweries on March 26! Get all the Events Info!
The parade of color explodes on top of the green lushness of the Atchafalaya Basin. It is a beautiful spectrum that you have to witness! Captain Caviar or other nearby operators are ready to bring you out to spot the gorgeous bayou landscapes, gators and other wildlife as well.
Along with swamp tours, there are also ways many ways to view beauty of the Atchafalaya Basin and nearby waterways. You can take a boardwalk out into the Bayou Teche National Wildlife Refuge, stroll along lovely Lake Palourde at the Brownell Memorial Park & Carillon Tower, or even stay overnight in a houseboat along the Cajun Coast.
The Bayou Teche National Scenic Byway provides an easy way to see the beauty of the area, meandering along the banks of the Bayou Teche. See this lovely waterway, moss-covered trees, and buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. Go download the brochure and plan your trip now.
We have also created itineraries that make planning easy to get away from it all this Spring! You can go camping, waking along the water’s edge, take an off-the-beaten path vacation, or venture out on the birding trail to witness the migratory birds this season.
