On behalf of the Vermilion Parish Tourist Commission, I would like to welcome you to "the Most Cajun place on earth!" Tourism is big business in Louisiana and having a great time is an area we specialize in. As you travel through Vermilion Parish, you'll see that we're a multicultural blend of people and cultures with deep-rooted history, Southern hospitality and a dash of "joie de vivre" (love of life) to finish the mix. This coastal parish is very large and diverse with quaint towns, lazy bayous, marshlands teeming with wildlife and nature, authentic local cuisine, family-friendly festivals and wonderful people connecting it all. Be sure to have your camera handy so you don't miss that perfect Vermilion Parish photo-op!
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, come where the locals go to enjoy crawfish, alligator, oysters, shrimp and all the classics fresh from our own waters.
