Lac-des-Allemands is a 12,000-acre lake located mostly in St. John the Baptist Parish and partly in Lafourche and St. Charles Parishes in southeastern Louisiana. It is about 26 miles west of New Orleans and is connected to Lake Salvador by Bayou des Allemands. Lac des Allemands is French for Lake of the Germans. The lake is shallow and very fertile, containing a large population of catfish. There is also the village of Des Allemands located at the lake. It is situated along the Bayou Des Allemands and has a population of around 2,500 residents. The village is known as the Catfish Capital of the Universe and is host to the annual Catfish Festival the second weekend in July. The whole area is known for its multicultural heritage, music, Cajun and Creole cuisine and of course, the New Orleans Mardi Gras celebration. A short drive from Lac des Allemands takes you to the city of New Orleans, famous for attractions such as Bourbon Street and the French Quarter, the mansions of Magazine Street, its many historic antique shops, restaurants, bars and nightlife. Other points of interest include the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans Museum of Art in City Park, the Audubon Zoo and the Aquarium of the Americas.
