Oaklawn on the Cajun Coast

Escape to the Cajun Coast!

The stress of the pandemic on top of the stress of the holidays will make you want to run away! We think that sounds like a great idea! Escape together to the Cajun Coast! We have room to roam and can take the stress out of the holidays! Distance yourselves and/or bring the family together with exploring, swamp tours, Main Street shopping amazing dining, and all the trappings of an idyllic holiday season!  We even have great holiday hotel rates to make your holidays even sweeter on the Cajun Coast!

Our beautiful, historic towns dress up for the holidays, featuring lighting ceremonies, tours, celebrations, shopping, and a Santa sighting or two to get you in the holiday spirit! See our complete list of activities for the holiday season!

While some November days may prove a little cool for spotting alligators, tour operators, like Captain Caviar, provide entertaining and educational tours of the beauty and mystery of the Atchafalaya waters.  If you prefer to get a little more up-close and personal, he can provide your needs for kayaking, too, and we have plenty of paddling trails for your outing.

Kids love to explore in the great outdoors, but if winter weather does rear its head, you can head indoors to explore the Wedell-Williams Cypress Sawmill and Aviation Museum. Fascinating history of innovation and speed will hold their interest – at least for a little while.

Shopping is as bountiful as a Thanksgiving table, with quaint Main Street offerings throughout the area where you’ll find eclectic gift options to bring home memories or just win at holiday shopping! With holiday shopping events, like Mistletoe & Moss Holiday Market or Moonlight Monday Shopping, you’ll get all your holiday gift-giving knocked out in no time!

If you are looking for ways to entertain your crowd, we’ve made the planning easy with several Staycation options, sorted by style of getaway or things to do, so check them out and make your to-do list! Your time together making memories will be the best part of your escape, so plan to join your family and friends to holiday on the Cajun Coast!
