I had plans to spend around 24 hours in Lafayette on our trip. We wanted to tour Lake Martin and then fill our time in around our swamp tour. I gave the family the option to tour the Alexadre House, Vermilionville or the science museum. They said they were house toured out and not up for thinking. (Her words.) So we set off for Vermilionville.
Vermilionville is right near the Lafayette airport and situated along the river. The small village shows the life of Creole and Acadian historic life. They moved several original homes to this location and show life from the late 1700’s to 1890s.
