From author James Lee Burke’s famed detective Dave Robicheaux’s stomping grounds to the sites for multiple movies and TV shows, Iberia Parish is steeped in acclaim, with a diverse and inclusive lifestyle that spans across multiple cultures.
Nestled on the banks of the Bayou Teche, New Iberia is renowned for its food, music, and festivals that draw on the melting pot of cultures in this community founded by Spaniards in 1779. Dedicated to preserving its rich history, Main Street and historic Downtown New Iberia are peppered with thriving local businesses and sites listed among the National Register Historic District. The Bayou Teche Museum, Shadows-on-the-Teche antebellum home, Conrad Rice Mill/Konriko Company Store, and Jefferson Island Rip Van Winkle Gardens offer a deeper view of the storied history of the area.
