Over 150 years in the making, Vermilion Parish is a multicultural blend steeped in history with a dash of "joie de vivre" or, love of life, finishing the mix. This bilingual, coastal parish is very large and diverse with wandering bayous and farmlands, authentic local cuisine, family-friendly festivals and Cajun towns connecting it all.
World-renown Cajun cooking is what we're known for and there's plenty of great restaurants to showcase it. Our proximity to the Gulf of Mexico also means we have an abundance of fresh seafood for our amazing cuisine. So when it's time to eat, sit down where the locals go to enjoy crawfish, alligator, oysters, shrimp and all the classics fresh from our own waters. Come for a visit, your place at the table is ready!
