CITY OF NEW IBERIA MARINAS

Visitors to the City of New Iberia along Bayou Teche can enjoy three downtown docking facilities.  The construction of these marinas serves as a catalyst for continued development of recreation and cultural projects for the City of New Iberia.  They provide boaters access to historic downtown to enjoy shopping, restaurants, a bookstore, art galleries, and specialty shops.  

 

New Iberia is home of James Lee Burke’s fictional character Detective Dave Robicheaux, Bayou Teche Museum, Founders Park, Church Alley, Shadows-on-the-Teche, Veterans Memorial, George Rodrigue Park and much more.  

We welcome you to visit New Iberia during one of the many festivals and events downtown including the Louisiana Sugarcane Festival, World Championship Gumbo Cookoff, El Festival Espanol Nueva Iberia, Books Along The Teche Literary Festival and Halloween and Christmas parades.  There is always a celebration in New Iberia!
