"WFTR's new Gonzales Page" Gonzales by WFTR

Gonzales Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 1 photos

I live in Gonzales, but VT moved my little red house to my main Louisiana page. I like living here so far, but aside from Mike Anderson's Seafood Restaurant, I see little to interest most tourists.

I recently read hurgata's review of this page and thought, "She's right. There's an important distinction between traveler and tourist, and the spirt of VT is to serve both." With that in mind, I'm going to add some content to my Gonzales page.

The real point of what I'm adding is that while Gonzales itself may not be a destination, it could be a good place to stay for someone visiting the area. I'll focus on restaurants and hotels. In this sense, I have an advantage writing about Gonzales that I wouldn't have for any other place that I've ever lived. This advantage is that I've stayed in Gonzales several times as a business traveler. I know what living in a hotel in Gonzales is like.

Many thanks to hurgata for making the point that she did.

P.S. I've moved the little red house back to Gonzales for now.

    If folks are interested in some great live Swamp Pop or Zydeco music for dancing or just listening, they should go to The Kab-a-ra Night Club on the corner of Hwys. 44 & 621. A very nice and fun place to spend a Friday or Saturday night!

    Love a 'diverse talent pool'... keeps a healthy balance.

    I loved your comments on fast food restaurants. Some of them from the same chain are better and some are worse. There are some McD's that I always have an upset stomach afterwards. Most are perfectly fine. Also liked your warning about plant turnarounds
