Living in Lafayette Posted On: 11/8/2009 4:28:46 PM
We have lived here two different time peiods in our lives. The people are unique, friendly, and independant. The city is very progressive, and has the only real net increase in populatin in the last 10 years in the state. We are far enough north, that hurricanes do not provide any tidal surge to Lafayette Parish.
This area is the heart of Acadiana, it is a cultural melting pot of french, creole, german'ss, spanish and cajuns.
There are many who have worked in the oil patch companies, who return to retire here. A great health care system exists, as well as innovative busniness have chosen to locate in Lafayette.
The cost of homes is higher than other places we have lived in, as the cajuns value their land.
