re: Your Opinion of Lafayette Will Be Directly Rel" by ReneMarie 6/4/2011 10:02:49 PM
I cant wait to get out of here. We needed to move here 2 years ago after the economy bust in FL. We moved to Tampa, FL in '05 from the Seattle area and could only enjoy it for 3 years. We are very unhappy. I have taken off several times to the FL panhandle to get my fix. It is so ugly here. The only nice area is River Ranch but it's very small. There a few other okay neighborhoods but not that great. There are a lot of job transplants here like us, several plates in our apt community are Floridian and even WA state plates which blew us away. The economy here is above most areas in the US which is why. I just wish they would put money into it. It's just so run down and Cajuns deserve better. The traffic is horrible too. Seattle is rated number 1 for traffic now so we know what bad traffic is. Husband got hit last year and I have almost been hit 4 times and I hardly go anywhere now because of it. Weather wise Tampa is humid but its tolerable. Here it isn't for me, much worse. I am trying to deal by telling myself I at least am in the South. My heart belongs to the South as my family on both sides are from TX, AR, and FL, and I will never move back north or west. I also will say this. I love the Cajun people and culture. They are very proud and I love that. I do feel a certain connection since I have French blood in me too, last name being Govreau. I enjoy going out to listen to zydeco and watch them dance. My husband won't dance with me :( Take care, ReneMarie
