There are many things to love about living in Lafayette & the Acadiana region.

Acadiana, or Cajun Country, is an area that includes seven Louisiana parishes. Lafayette represents the unofficial heart of the region and fosters a strong sense of community, where access and convenient, comfortable living are hallmarks of the Acadiana region. Those living in Lafayette or its surrounding area are conveniently located near top area schools, parks, health care facilities and a variety of retail outlets.

Young students have a number of options for high-performing public and private schools along with Schools of Choice options with magnet-style programs. In addition, a low cost of living and some of the lowest property taxes in the country makes Lafayette living an easy choice for those looking to call this region home.
