May brings out the best in our Momma Bears, and what better way to celebrate than giving Mom the gift of travel to the Cajun Coast! Come at the beginning of May for the Bayou Teche Black Bear Fest when Momma and the whole family of bears get celebrated. Or bring Mom for her style getaway this summer! We have plenty of options!
If your Mom thrives in the great outdoors, bring her to explore and enjoy the beauty of nature all along the Cajun Coast! You can take a swamp tour or get Mom down in a kayak to paddle the vast Atchafalaya Basin! Tours by Steven can even provide the kayak and the guide for a delightful tour. Find a swamp tour captain or deep sea guide, and go exploring on all our waterways.
The Bayou Teche Scenic Byway is a beautiful drive along one of our most famous waterways, the Bayou Teche, combining natural beauty with more than 100 historic properties along the way. Bring Mom along this corridor and stop off in main street districts to shop, enjoy factory and plantation tours, dine at delicious spots, and even win at an area casino.
For moms who enjoy retail therapy, the Cajun Coast is full of spots for antique, boutique, and unique shopping! Our Main Street districts are alive with local shops, dining, art & activities, including scheduling a Candle Pouring Soiree at Fifolet Candlemakers! Check out our shopping section and plan your shop-til-you-drop adventure.
Toast the mom in Mom & Pop, when you geaux local, dining on the Cajun Coast! We have so many local eateries (from diner to fine dining) you’ll be able to please mom’s palate and give her a night out of the kitchen on your culinary adventure on the Cajun Coast! You know we don’t just eat to live here, it’s all live to eat! Join us for a feast for your senses!
When you’ve played all day and are looking for a place to stay, we’ve got you covered for camping out to glamming it up! Find gorgeous bed & breakfasts, casino suites, comfortable name brand hotels, and even RV parks to suit your mom! Yep, that houseboat is an option for a really cool stay.
