Lafayette Named Best of the South in Three Categories
AAA Southern Traveler Readers Poll Results Released
 
Lafayette is a AAA Southern Traveler Best of the South winner in three categories: Best Small Town in Louisiana, Best Getaway in the South and Tastiest Town.
 
AAA Southern Traveler, a magazine that features articles on travel destinations, sponsored their Best of the South annual poll that allows participants to vote for their favorite places to visit, stay, dine and have fun in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi. The results of this poll become recommendations to readers on where to go for a memorable experience in the South.
 
“It’s always great to receive recognition by publications like AAA Southern Traveler and their readers to what amounts as a ‘free commercial’ for Lafayette Parish,” said Ben Berthelot, Lafayette Convention & Visitors Commission President and CEO. "At the end of the day, we hope the recognition will inspire readers to travel back to Lafayette Parish and experience all that we have to offer.”
 
According to the article in the July/August issue of AAA Southern Traveler, which announces the winners of the poll, readers also liked Natchitoches and Breaux Bridge for best small town in Louisiana. In the categories of Best Getaway in the South and Tastiest Town, readers also liked New Orleans and Biloxi, Miss. Don’s Seafood Hut in Lafayette won for Best Gumbo in Louisiana. Readers also liked the gumbo at Prejean’s and Chris’ PoBoys.
 
“A win in the Tastiest Town category continues a nice little streak of food awards for Lafayette, and these types of awards help validate our reputation as a foodie town with some of the best locally owned restaurants in the world,” said Berthelot.
In recent years, Lafayette has been named Best Food City (Rand McNally/USAToday, 2011), Tastiest Town of the South (Southern Living, 2012) and a Top 10 Foodie City (Livability.com, 2013).
