Known as the "Crawfish Capital of the World," Breaux Bridge offers natural beauty and historical richness in Louisiana. The city's history dates back to 1771 when an Acadian pioneer decided to help out his community by building a small footbridge, and the town's good-spirited nature has only grown since then. Spend some time enjoying the charming downtown area and appreciate the unique shops and cafes the town offers, or enjoy a world-famous crawfish meal at one of the many restaurants that celebrate the local legacy. The town was the first to publicly offer crawfish on their menus, and the town continues to host its annual crawfish festival, which many regards as one of the best festivals throughout the state. With a welcoming atmosphere, friendly locals, and delicious food, there's something for everyone here.
