Are you looking for something really cool to do with the kids? I recently visited the WOW! Children's Museum in Lafayette with my 3 yr old son and it was blast! Located right near downtown Lafayette, this interactive museum has tons of activities that are educational and fun.
WOW! takes kids on a fun, hands-on journey that highlights things like reading, math, science and the arts. This place has everything from a pirate ship, a toddler beach complete with slide and sandbox, a pretend grocery store and bank, plus an outside play area.
