In a recent poll, Lafayette was voted the happiest city in America. ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com ) Having lived here my entire life, I can personally vouch for that. Walk around town, and you will notice that special charm. The hospitality and sense of community are unbeatable! Having traveled to many other cities, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else except here.
Lafayette brings in lots of tourism due to its unique french heritage and culture. This includes the annual Festival International where musicians and artists come from around the world to perform downtown! With Festival International, Mackenzie Bourg’s recent achievement in American Idol, and one of a kind cuisine, Lafayette has popped up on many traveler’s bucket list. Who wouldn’t want to live here??
