Carencro is the perfect place to stay in Lafayette as many of the city’s star attractions are close. Two attractions that should top every visitor’s to-do list is the fascinating Acadian Village and the much-loved Mall of Acadiana. And if your schedule allows, be sure to visit the Kart Ranch Family Fun Center and the Zoo of Acadiana.
There are many natural gifts here as well, so don’t miss the nearby green spaces. To catch a glimpse of the local wilderness drive out to the Evangeline State Park.
This area is the home turf of the much-loved Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns college basketball team in winter and Louisiana IceGators ice hockey team. Both teams compete in regular games at Cajundome. This multi-purpose facility is also a first rate live music venue, so check the stadium’s gig guide to see what’s on during your stay.
Finding somewhere comfortable to base yourself around the Carencro area is a breeze. If you're looking for great service and a comfortable bed, check out the Hilton Lafayette, the Hotel Acadiana, and the popular Wingate by Wyndham Lafayette Airport.
