Lafayette is located in southern Louisiana. It has the rich culture you would expect from a Louisiana town. Also, because it is a college town, it is very much concerned with education. People of all ages, cultures, and personality types will find that Lafayette is a pleasant place to live.

Lafayette has many beautiful neighborhoods. Different people like different areas of the city for their own reasons. However, the south side of the city is typically the most sought after. The area surrounding the University of Louisiana – Lafayette is known as the university area. This area, as well as Lafayette’s Downtown District, is more urban in nature than other parts of Lafayette. It is possible to walk to the school, local restaurants, shops, and art galleries. Broadmore is mostly residential and home to people of many different ages. This is also where the Thomas Park Recreation Center is located. Broussard, Youngsville, and Scott are small cities on the outskirts of Lafayette. Many people enjoy these areas as well.

There is a ton of fun things to do in Laffy. Lafayette is a city that takes education seriously, and that is apparent in the attractions it has to offer. The Zoo of Acadiana is a favorite for local residents as well as people all over Louisiana. It has several animals and hosts many special events. A train brings you on a tour all around the zoo for more interactive fun. The Science Museum in Lafayette is a great place to spend the afternoon. There are often special exhibits the visit so be sure to be on the lookout for your favorites. Also, for the Louisiana history buffs, experiencing Lafeyette just isn’t complete without a tour of one of the authentic Acadian villages. There is Acadian Village and Vermillionville. The area is set up with buildings and items that the Acadians would have had. Costumed tour guides often play the part as they guide you in exploring the past. Biology was never quite as fun as a visit to one of the Louisiana swamps. You can take a swamp tour to see nature at its finest with Cajun Swamp Tours.
