If you want to see as much of Louisiana as possible in a single trip, pack your bags and say bonjour to Opelousas, a city first settled by French traders. The fur trade is dead today, so to speak, but the city is alive and well thanks to countless thriving festivals, amazing cuisine, and an ideal location. Opelousas, Louisiana is situated within driving distance of New Orleans, Lafayette, Baton Rouge, and Alexandria, which means that hotels in Opelousas, LA put you in the heart of a kingdom of revelry.
Freedom is knowing that you have a choice, and Opelousas grants you this power with three airport options for you to arrive at. Whether you fly into Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (two hours away by car), Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport (one hour away), or Lafayette Regional Airport (30 minutes away), you’re still on Louisiana time. Heed the call of the balmy bayou and meander through the shade of the baldycypress, and keep a watchful eye open, or you might miss wildlife like whopping cranes, armadillos, and otters. Make your way to the Creole Heritage & Folklife Center to learn the Creole basics, and then top it off with Creole culinary delights. Dig into shrimp remoulade, gumbo, fresh oysters, dirty rice, and just try to resist the sweet beignets topped with powdered sugar for dessert. After all that food, Opelousas, LA hotels await your slumber.
