Offering that authentic Louisiana-French feel, that Cajun spice, Lafayette is a city whose atmosphere and pizzazz will keep you in love day after day. It's nicknamed "The Hub City," and for good reason too, considering it’s an economic and cultural hub of Louisiana. Lafayette's economy is built upon the gas and oil industries, profitable and stable economic sources which offer jobs all around in every sort of field. Another boon is the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, which hosts more than 17000 students and is the second-largest university in the state. You can discover the rich history of the city through its numerous and interesting museums and districts. The Vermilionville, which was the original name of the city, is one such district, and it offers the full Cajun experience and history. Truly a must see. Other great districts include the Acadian Village, which hosts the Acadian Cultural Center for a historical museum experience. As an amazing architectural visit, the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist is amazing. For the nature lovers, the hiking trails at the Lake Martin Rookery and the Atchafalaya Experience are fun, challenging, and unforgettable. And if you have kids the Lafayette Science Museum and the Children's Museum of Acadania are great for interactive day trips. Lafayette offers comfortable homes of one or two stories in a contemporary style. But if you want to go all-out, get mansion or a Plantation style chateau. Discover layouts from two beds and baths to five beds and four baths. Prices are low: from 150000 to 795000. Lafayette- great architecture, economy, schools and more; all that is missing is a home from New Home Source.
