A room in Cajun Country, Jeff’s Personal Crawfish Boil in Breaux Bridge, and having a blast in New Orleans French Quarter. Jeff and Donna learn about local music from Airbnb host Hugh in Lafayette, Louisiana, then head to Breaux Bridge, the crawfish capital of the world where Jeff enjoys a boil for one. Off to New Orleans Frenchmen’s street where Donna finds an Airbnb in the heart of the music and arts.

Lafayette, LA 

AIRBNB: Large Comfortable Room w/Private Entry and Bath: 4 Guest, 1 Bedroom, 2 Beds, 1 Bath.  Host Hugh

Airbnb Description: Our nice large room with private bath is just two blocks from downtown. Walk to Festivals, music venues and restaurants. Many fun things are in close driving distance. Comfortable for two couples or two singles. Refrigerator and microwave, washer/dryer and wifi. Queen bed and double bed in room. Please note that I’m located near the RR crossing and trains do pass several times a day, but the storm windows reduce the horn sounds fairly well. Most people say they are not bothered by them.

Breakfast: The French Press: Cajun Benedict,  Sweet Baby Breesus and Praline Bacon

Acadian Cultural Center


Donna’s Wish List
