Cajun Day Trip #4
For Cajun Music Lovers

For Saturday and Sunday's Only!

Get ready to pass a good time.  These day trips are for Cajun music lovers who not only enjoy listening to the music, they get to experience the culture first hand!  Live music with the Cajun Culture at every stop!

It doesn't matter if you're planning on staying in Cajun Country 1 day or 5 days, if you are here on the weekend, you've lucked out.  SMILE!

Let a Cajun plan your weekend Day Trips and get the most out of your stay in Cajun land.  Inn Keeper, Sandra Booher, grew up around here and she is a Cajun also. Therefore organizing these day trips are a breeze!

We've got two Saturday Day Trips you can pick from below and one Sunday Day Trip.  Whether you decide to head East (Breaux Bridge) or West (Mamou & Eunice) from the Mansion, your day will be filled with as much of the Cajun Culture and Fun that you can stand.   I promise you'll have smiles on your faces!

The itineraries listed below are listed in order of when each establishment is opened and when the music begins.  So all you have to do is show up!

You'll leave the Mansion with a card and when presented to each and every place listed on the trip, you'll get some type of LAGNIAPPE (extra) or a discount.
