Whether you are a long-time resident of Lafayette, Louisiana, or just passing through, our hometown has something for you. Here are just a few of our favorite things to do in Lafayette:
Visit Acadian Village
Step back into Louisiana’s Cajun roots at Acadian Village. Don’t forget to pick out some homemade candy at the General Store!
Take the Kids to Zoosiana
Zoosiana is our local zoo and features wonderfully interactive exhibits and hosts fun seasonal events throughout the year. It’s the perfect place to spend an afternoon with the kiddos.
Tour the Swamps of LeBlanc
If you didn’t get enough authentic Cajun-ness from your visit to Acadian Village, run over to our neighbors in Saint Martinville and take a swamp tour. From the safety of your speedboat, a real swamp-man will talk you through all the beautiful waterfowl, monstrous gators, gorgeous foliage, and swamp history.
Devour a Shrimp Poor Boy at Olde Tyme Grocery
Of all the things to do in Lafayette, this one might be the tastiest. Stop by Olde Tyme Grocery and order the shrimp poor boy – you won’t regret it.
Stop in at Hampton Mitsubishi
Whether you’re popping in for some standard maintenance for your beloved “Mitsu” or checking out our wide-ranging stock of brand new models, a stop at Hampton Mitsubishi is always a good thing to do in Lafayette.
At Hampton Mitsubishi, we’re proud to support the local Lafayette community as well as be part of Hampton Auto. We think community involvement is of the utmost importance, and we’re constantly striving to help those in need and make the Lafayette community the very best it can be. Here are a few recent highlights of Hampton Auto’s support of the community.
- Recently, Fran and Mark Hampton made a $10,000 donation to United Way to help flood victims. As Mark said, “Acadiana has been so good to all of us and this is just a way in hopes of paying back this community that we love so much!”
- In 2016, Hampton Toyota — a sister dealership to Hampton Mitsubishi — was named the Best of 2016 Lafayette Auto Dealer. Every year, the Lafayette Award Program selects the best local businesses around in terms of business growth, customer care and service, and community involvement. We’re very proud that Hampton Toyota was named to this elite list.
- In 2014, Hampton Toyota proudly took part in the Patriot Guard Riders Care Package Drive. The Patriot Guard Riders work tirelessly to support the families and attend the funerals of fallen service members: U.S. military, firefighters, and police. The Care Package Drive collects items such as blankets, toiletries, and other items we use daily and monetary donations to build the care packages, delivering these packages to veterans and other retired service members living in Lafayette’s local nursing homes. At Hampton Mitsubishi, we proudly stand with and serve those who have served us.
