Breaux Bridge the crawfish capital of the world

There are very few communities that provide the perfect balance of culture and heritage to create the joie de vivre that is found in Breaux Bridge. Nature has provided the stunning palate on which the community has been painted, and Cajun voices and Zydeco provide the soundtrack.

The Chitimacha Indians, the region’s original inhabitants, have a legend of an enormous snake that plagued the area. The Chitimacha sent their warriors to kill the 124-mile long snake; the reptile turned, coiled and twisted in its death throes to form the Bayou Teche (“Snake” Bayou).

Breaux Bridge was born on this beautiful bayou (in the heart of the Acadiana region just over 30 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico), and like all great cities, it has a story to tell.
