growing area Posted On: 6/30/2007 9:59:21 AM
Growing area for people who work in Sulphur and Lake Charles--nice houses and golf course. Some realtors in the area like to push this area. Some areas flood at times other than that quite and peaceful.
where i would live Posted On: 6/30/2007 9:54:07 AM
If I lived/worked in Sulphur would definitely live in the Maplewood area. If not Maplewood it would be north of Sulphur going toward DeQuincy La. Or look in Carlyss La.
nice area Posted On: 6/30/2007 9:48:21 AM
One of the nicer areas surrounding the Lake Charles area. Considered a garden community. Great schools and neighborhoods. If relocating here consider Moss Bluff.
in reference to the "new resident" of Lake Charles Posted On: 6/30/2007 9:41:55 AM
Sound like you hate it in Lake Charles --yes they have problems but every city in the US has a problem--no city/town is perfect. Please if you hate it so much leave. Listen to the life long residents or someone who grew up here not a person who has lived there only 2 years or so.
Other than the above comment Lake Charles is experiencing alot of growth right now. People from the Lake Charles are proud of their town and they have such beautiful housing here. I am very proud of Lake Charles-- they have big community spirit.
Way to go Lake Charles! Thanks for trying to improve the city with strong religious values, community and family.
would have like to stay longer Posted On: 4/2/2007 6:51:26 PM
Harrisonburg is a beautiful place. People who get to live in this area are fortunate. We visited a short time--I would have like to stayed and visited longer. Great place to go on vaction and visit.
After hurricane Rita (the forgotten storm)we have Posted On: 4/2/2007 6:47:53 PM
After hurricane Rita--this city got it together. I have never seen a city put forth such an effort of getting stuff back in order. Driving around you now see new business and alot of new housing being built all over the Calcasieu parish area and Lake Charles area. Lake Charles sets an example.
On Contraband days--this is a big yearly festival which all different kind of folks attend. This town is very family-oriented.
native of Louisiana moving to San Antonio Posted On: 5/22/2006 7:30:45 AM
I do not understand all these negative comments--all of the deep south is extremely hot and humid--I have lived in Southwest Louisiana all my life and it has always been hot and humid--if ya'll can not stand the heat go back up north or move somewhere else. Everyone should know it is hot down here before they move or come down here. My husband and I are moving to San Antonio this summer he is transferring jobs. Everyone we have talked to has said this is a beautiful city and area even a popular home/garden tv channel gave it a thumbs up as one of the most actively growing cities with a cost of living and housing that cannot be beat. Looking forward to experiencing San Antonio.
southern hospitality and tropical fell with the pl Posted On: 4/11/2006 12:07:07 PM
Average sized town of 75,000 people located in Southwest Louisiana close to the Texas border. An extremely proud community which shows it in their culture and cuisine. Beautiful homes along our waterways and in town/parish. Affordable housing and taxes--can still get a big house for a medium price. Proerty taxes are not high compared to other locales in US. Home to McNeese State University -- Contraband Days fesival coming up first weekend in May--one example of our many festivals we have each year.
Friendly people,proud people-- a place I have called home since childhood. Ya'll come see us!
nice small town Posted On: 4/11/2006 11:54:30 AM
Lived here for 5 years--nice smaller town outside Lake Charles area approximately 10 minutes north. Affordable housing/taxes etc. We bounced back since Rita--a whole lot of growth and building going on. Extremely nice homes on the river. Great southern hospitality and of course excellent Cajun food.
different and unusal Posted On: 12/30/2005 2:54:49 PM
Sedona is very artzy and different for most towns--there are no big box stores which keeps it a quaint artzy town--the residental housing there is awesome --it is true-- it is unlike any other place. Very beautiful--any one who can afford to live there is very lucky. Love it!
about Flagstaff area Posted On: 12/30/2005 2:51:06 PM
beautiful country--nothing like it--however--very expensive to live there--checked with realtor a standard size mobile home on half acre was 140,000.00--this is a 1976 mobile home. Some said it was cheaper to live outside Flagstaff (Williams). If you can afford a 200,000 to 400,000 house I say go for it --Flagstaff has some awesome views there.
shopping and where to reside Posted On: 12/18/2005 6:53:03 PM
If you cannot find in houston it does not exist--come here to Houston to shop from Louisiana. Great to have a city like this so close to us.
Great areas outside of Houston are Sugarland, Katy and Pearland--if I moved to Houston I would live in one of these 3 areas and commute in.
cute homes in downtown area--Bettendorf also nice Posted On: 12/18/2005 6:47:52 PM
very cute town--alot of cute cottages in downtown area--alot different than in the deep south--the people are extremely nice. Considered moving here for a change of season --wished we would have. Larger community with hometown feel about it.
when you drive you better be paying attention Posted On: 12/18/2005 6:41:50 PM
traffic heavy on interstate through St. Louis--you better be paying attention when you are driving as people cut you off and drive way over the speed limit. Interesting architecture and nice view of arch.
Lafayette-pretty town--nice people. Posted On: 12/13/2005 8:20:30 AM
Jack and Terri comments are totally wrong. I am not from Lafayette but I am here to tell you it is a beautiful city with great architecture and friendly people. Cajun people and people from the South are some of the nicest people--shame on you. Cajun food is the best tasting food in the USA. People from this area do everthing in excess--their food --architecture-- decorating and parties. To me that is great--if you got it flaunt it sugar. There are alot of educated people whom live here in Louisiana--they are not all illiterate, most of them have their teeth and most of them do not live in trailer parks. You encounter illiterate,toothless trailer trash in all 50 states not just Lafayette or Louisiana.
