“A Little Bit Country. A Little Bit Rock ‘n’ Roll.” While certainly not in the genre of Zydeco, this well-known song title just may be the definitive summary of Lake Charles. A blend of contrasts that magically works together in total harmony. A Cajun personality with a Texas flair. A love for big-city entertainment and a relished joy of nature. Bold and outspoken, yet equally laid-back and homey. Stylish and carefree — a little black dress paired with flip-flops.

That odd, enchanting mix of style and settings is experienced throughout Lake Charles. World-class resorts equally allure adults for the thrill of casino gaming as they do families seeking a weekend getaway of luxurious pools and winding lazy rivers. Majestic live oaks adorned in Spanish moss frame elegant homes along the shoreline of Lake Charles, starkly contrasting the mysterious bayous of Louisiana’s Outback and wide-open beaches along the Gulf of Mexico. Po Boys on paper plates — as mouth-watering Cajun as the culinary art prepared by local chefs. Both incredibly delicious. Both equally Lake Charles. It’s where even an afternoon drive can take an unexpected twist — stunning scenery along the Creole Nature Trail becomes a tasting tour of every local’s favorite snack — Boudin. Here, over 75 festivals year-round celebrate all things Louisiana. Even Mardi Gras in Lake Charles brings its own unique contrast as more a family event, celebrating history and meaning.

To visit Lake Charles is to know Louisiana in all its variety. Lake Charles isn’t one flavor — one look. It’s a mixture of cultures and pursuits. Its people, artistically expressive, compassionate about nature, and united in their enthusiasm and eagerness to share. Lake Charles is the best of Louisiana infused into something irresistible. Fresh. A little spicy. And oh, so satisfying.
