Great Culture, Great Food - 11/7/2014
Best food in the world, very friendly. Lots of festivals. It is small town when it comes to concerts and things to do. For entertainment everyone usually goes to dinner or hangs out with friends. Housing is VERY expensive and crime has gone up...other than that it is a nice place to live. I love the Cajun Read More

could not possibly HATE/LOATHE/DESPISE it more :D - 4/3/2012
hate the real estate market_
any house that will be left standing after a hurricane is priced WAY too high for not enough home!! HATE the segregated education!!! there is NO magnet system so if you are poor you are OBLIGATED to receive poor education sad for those who are smart but poor Great for those who are mildly rich but stupid! HATE the food- tourist state yes, diversity is education; education is imagination; imagination is evolution and there is no evolution in Louisiana (anyone raised in Louisiana won't understand that statement)!!! The people here are so "rich" in culture that they cant see past their own noses! So many things are abandoned!! things that aren't abandoned are just neglected and its perceived as "beautiful and authentic". I'm going insane because of the closed minds here!!! I could go into detail here for hours about why i feel what i feel, but to sum it up fast...HATE IT HATE IT HATE Read More

lafayette,la. is not a nice town! 'God honest trut - 3/7/2011
im born and raised in lafayette,la. until the age of 13 and move around alot to various places due to my father being in the military and myself also and i must say that my experiance of being here and there showed me how much lafayette really lacks and a whole lot. it showed me how little is actually put into the city as a whole everything from naturallandscaping,attractions,roads,education,etc..im not downing my hometown, but rather upset that we lack all these things over the years and all these other towns not as big as lafayette are moving on building up and we still look like a town with a 80's image.dont mention downtown nothing impressive at all,and thats the truth about lafayeet,la. Read More

c'est la bonne vie (it's the good life) in Lafayet - 2/13/2011
My wife and I moved to Lafayette from Quebec about 5 years ago, and it's been a wonderful place to live. I think anyone that has posted negative comments around the people and culture must have really chosen their company poorly. I've found everyone really inviting and friendly thus far.

As we have French Canadian background, we've really enjoyed the unique culture here, from the French immersion programs at some schools, to the unique Cajun/Acadien French dialect and cuisine. Acadiana also has many wonderful cultural festivals (Festival International de Louisiane, my favourite) throughout the year; it's been a lot of fun for the family.

Although housing costs are a bit higher than I'm used to, it has not been too bad. They have many beautiful neighborhoods here as well like River Ranch, Greenbriar, The Settlement; there's a really nice sense of community.

I would highly recommend Lafayette to anyone looking for a unique place to raise Read More

Your Opinion of Lafayette Will Be Directly Related - 2/8/2011
Lafayette is UGLY. There are very, very few attractive places in relation to the vast majority of commercial and residential areas that are neglected.

If you have lived in a city that cares about it's impressions to visitors and potential residents, you will notice this immediately. Very few greenbelts or parks, virtually no attractive landscaping, and it has some of the ugliest shopping centers on the planet as you drive down Johnston (the major artery)unless you are passing the college. If you were raised in the area, you probably will not realize this absolute fact unless you have lived in an area where some funds are spent creating a modicum of pride in the city's appearance.

The people are very nice and polite on the surface. Underneath there is a pervasive prejudice against people of color. I have never heard the "n" word used with as much flippant use as I have living in this area, and correct or enlighten at your own risk. Again, is you have lived Read More

Lafayette-A Cajun's Point of View - 11/25/2009
I love my city. It is a part of America, and because of that Jack and Terri are allowed to write whatever their opinion is about Lafayette. That's called freedom. However, freedom does not promise wisdom or sensitivity. This is a truly wonderful city in which to live and raise your children. I have to ask this question about their comments, "What is wrong with you?" Our French culture is genuine; born of a people who were isolated from the rest of the country for a couple of centuries. I'll tell you what I tell anybody who comes to America and doesn't like. If you don't like it here go back to where you came from. We only want people who know how to enjoy themselves here. We won't mind because there are plenty of other people who also love this city. God Bless you on your merry Read More
