Spend the day, or two or three, exploring our charming historic downtown, home to many old homes and buildings, 15 of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Old Spanish Trail is now our Main Street, and you can still see some of the original horse rings for tethering your ride along Main and Morgan Streets. History buffs will enjoy the architecture and even the old cemetery at Sacred Heart Church, and food lovers will delight in local cuisine such as Ton’s Drive-In, which had the first drive thru window in Lafayette Parish! And if shopping is on your agenda, our downtown is home to several boutiques filled with treasures. Get down and stay awhile in downtown Broussard!
