A Visit to Vermilionville


If your Frugal Family Travelers love living history as much as our do, then you will want to plan a visit to Vermilionville.   Located in Lafayette and with approximately 23-acres and structures dating between 1665 to 1890, Vermilionville is an amazing representation of Acadian culture.   Local artisans demonstrating crafts, carving, music and other aspects of life for the early settlers, makes this a great "hands on" learning environment that's fun for the whole family!  Our Frugal Family Travelers particularly loved meeting and talking to the carving artisan who was on site and also with a fiddler sharing music.  We really loved the old ferry and ferrying ourselves across the bayou to view another section of the park!

Tips: 
Bring sunscreen and water.  Water fountain is available on site.
