Located just minutes south of Lafayette and west of New Iberia, Vermilion Parish is easily accessible from I-10 via Hwy. 26, Hwy. 13, I-49/Hwy. 167 and Hwy. 90. All of these highways connect to Hwy. 14 which runs through our parish. You may also travel to Vermilion Parish from Texas via Hwy. 82. This is a scenic drive along our back roads where you can view nature and our wildlife. Bring your binoculars and be on the lookout for alligators along the way!
