Keep Scrolling for a List of Free Places to Visit in Lafayette

For us who live here in Hub City, this offers a way for us to rediscover Lafayette. One of the places on my list to visit now (or re-visit) is the Acadian Park Nature Station. I remember being in maybe fourth or fifth grade when we visited the Nature Station.

Even when the bus pulled up on the gravel road leading into the park, our guide came out to greet us. She also told us that so many tiny pieces of artifacts were pulled from the ground that the property sits on. We were even invited to look through the area adjacent to the road to find a piece of pottery or an arrowhead.

In addition to the places listed below, Lafayette Travel has suggestions for more venues to visit, but they are costs associated with those venues.

Fun and Free for Kids and Parents in Lafayette

It seems like the cost of everything is going up. If you're a parent you want to take your kids out to enjoy our area, but it would also be nice to know where you can go and find attractions that don't cost anything.
