A downtown district open for discovery

Here in Old Town Lafayette, we believe the best memories start with an impromptu journey.

Old Town Lafayette embraces discovery and diversity to create a place like no other. At every corner of our district, you’ll find a new sight to see and a new path to explore.

Founded in 1888, our town has a passion for breaking conventions. From alleyways of artwork to an eclectic mix of restaurants, museums, businesses, and attractions, our free-form style can serve every side of you, even the parts you haven’t discovered yet.

We’re a creative hub that embraces self-expression, but our heart is in the community we serve. From artists to artisans and small businesses to nonprofits, our urban identity is rooted in the people who call Old Town Lafayette home.

Things to Do

When you visit our unique downtown, discovery awaits. Whether you are a Lafayette local, out-of-town traveler, or day-tripper, you’re welcome to wander the attractions, activities, businesses, and artwork that make our district a destination like no other.
