What Bert Has To Say About Lafayette Metro Area

Lafayette is a small city in south-central Louisiana, and like many small Southern cities, it has a modest downtown area with patches of decline and renewal, and a fair amount of sprawl along major arteries. Oil and gas are the main industries, but the University of Louisiana has a 17,000 student campus in town and adds some vitality. The heart of Cajun country, Lafayette is a center for the flavors, sounds, and history of that colorful culture.
