Lafayette, Louisiana, is a great place the whole family can enjoy. Whether you’re a resident or are just visiting, there’s no shortage of fun family activities in Lafayette, whether you’re looking for a weekend night out or something educational. From your friends at Hampton Mitsubishi, here are a few of our local favorites.
Children’s Museum of Acadiana
While Lafayette certainly isn’t short of museums or historic buildings, children learn best by being actively engaged. The Children’s Museum of Acadiana provides hands-on participation so families can have fun – and learn – together.
Does your family like to go bowling? Whether you’re showing off your skills on the venue’s 16 lanes, enjoying live music, eating in the restaurant, or having a drink with friends, Rock‘n’Bowl de Lafayette is a unique bowling experience.
Vermillionville Historic Village
The outdoor living history museum of Vermillionville is a 23-acre village called a “folk life park.” The Vermillionville Historic Village is populated by artisans and reenactors in authentic costumes from the 1700s, depicting traditional Acadian, Creole, and Native American cultures.
History isn’t the only educational experience Lafayette has to offer. The local science museum features a digital planetarium that lets you get a better view of the cosmos, and other exhibits cover everything from biology to paleontology.
