JamieMy Take
Louisiana is packed full of history and rich in culture, and I am grateful that I have had the opportunity to experience both the northern and southern regions; however, it seems as though my heart has led me back south to the Cajun Heartland of Louisiana. It is definitely the one place that I can be myself, eat some of the best food there is, and do what the Cajuns do: “Laissez les bons temps rouler!” (Let the good times roll!). Living here is quite entertaining and lots of fun, especially being able to access the majority of festivals and events. Unfortunately, transportation is not great in the Lafayette area, but if you are able to get to where you want to, access is available.

Skinny on the City
Lafayette is the fourth largest city and home to the second largest university in Louisiana, University of Louisiana at Lafayette. It is known for many things, but has been nicknamed “Cajun Heartland” for its French heritage and Cajun traditions. It is known worldwide for its mouth-watering food, upbeat French music, outstanding festivals, and enthusiastic, fun-loving people.
