L O U I S I A N A area is a sure-enough Louisiana option for small meetings. It's home to Bayou Teche National Wildlife Area and also the gate- way to Atchafalaya National Heritage Area. Outdoor activities abound, such as swamp tours, paddling and more. The area's largest meeting facility is the Morgan City Municipal Auditorium, which offers 10,000 square feet of meet- ing space with a stage. The Clarion Inn in Morgan City provides more than 7,000 square feet of meeting space, including a nearly 3,000-square-foot ballroom. Nearby Charenton's Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel offers gaming, dining and live performances. "Small destinations provide great opportunities for networking because there aren't so many distractions that often occur with larger destinations," said Carrie Stans- bury, executive director of the Cajun Coast CVB. "We can add a greater personal touch and customize experiences that result in a meaningful yet enjoyable meeting, seminar or conference." n Alexandria Zoological Park
