Avery Island is also very nice. I forgot about it. Are there many flowers in bloom this time of year? The Tabasco plant's a rip off, though.

When you're at Shadows, take some time to admire the grounds in the back. I'll be dreaming that's my backyard for quite a long time. I'd have to put in a pool, though.

I was gonna mention Lake Martin and Avery Island, but I dont think the OP has a lot of time to spend around Lafayette. If they find the time to go these places I highly recommend it. Especially Avery Island gardens.

Depending on the weather, Friday evening you could go to Downtown Alive for some music and dancing.
