Sunset sits at the I-49 which is 10 miles north of Lafayette and also 10 miles south of Opelousas in the very center of Acadian. Sunset is much known for its annual horticultural events. On the very first Saturday in May, the Sunset Garden Club rejoices for the Celebration of Herbs and Garden. Almost 75 vendors show off their best native plants, vegetable plants, herbal products, herbs and yard art.

La Caboose Bed and Breakfast is another destination for plant lovers in Sunset. They have over 3 acres of train cars as sleeping quarters along with lush garden, pecan trees, native flowers and orchards. Another is the Chretien Point Plantation which is located on the outside part of the town and once the home of a 10,000 acre of cotton. The plantation held many stories of the Civil War and was once the inspiration in a setting in the very famous movie, Gone with the Wind. Also for every 4th of December, the town celebrates its Foundation Day with Christmas trees, lighting and parade.

There are a few destinations you should see in this small town. One is the Sunset Antique Market and Auction House which one can find the most precious art, antiques and collectibles for once-in-a-lifetime journey back to when the town was home to the booming sweet potatoes industry. It also has antique warehouses which are almost a century old. Another is the Nanny Belles’ Antique where you will be impressed with 10,000 square feet of glassware, antiques and more. It is considered the Antique Home of the Country. They also serve pastries and coffee in the morning, so you can enjoy the precious collections while you have a taste of their finest food.

It held the title once as the Potato Capital of the World, but losing it does not mean they also lost their town. They look for alternatives and revived the agricultural industry in town. You can find unique places to fully enjoy the culture and tradition this town has.

Sunset is a town in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, United States and part of the Opelousas-Eunice Micropolitan Statistical Area. It was founded in 1904 and held its very first meeting with its first leader Mayor Victor Hugo Sibille in December 7, 1904. Sunset was then hailed as the potato capital of the world but since the decline of the crop, soybean and corn took over.
