Visit the Historic Rice Theatre; tour Crystal Heritage Farm with its Blue Rose Museum, collection of vintage antique cars and for the unique experience of rice and crawfish on a working farm. Visit Crowley's Ford Motor Company building that is City Hall and is home to the Rice Interpretive Center and J.D. Miller Recording Studio. All this and more here in Crowley, the Rice Capital of the America, also known as Tree City U.S.A.

The charm of the Frog Murals and Tree Frogs explains why Rayne is the Frog Capital of the World and Louisiana City of Murals, with its St. Joseph's Cemetery graves facing North and South, which is listed in "Ripley's Believe It Or Not". Travel the Zydeco Cajun Prairie Scenic Byway to Church Point tour the Le Vieux Presbytere (parsonage home) and le Vieux Moulin (Cajun gift shop) in Church Point, home of the Buggy Capital of the World.

CELEBRATE with us at our fairs and festivals; ENJOY the taste you long for that begins right here in Acadia Parish Louisiana, the Heart of Cajun Prairie Country. That remarkable Cajun cooking is at its best in any of our local restaurants. And by all means, you must dance the 'Cajun two step' or tap your feet to the unique beat of the Zydeco music! After a day of touring, RELAX in one of our fine Motels or unforgettable Bed & Breakfast or at an RV Campground. All are centrally located and within minutes of all major parish attractions. And so, consider this an invitation to experience what the locals call….
