Default Opinions on moving to the Lafayette area ?

Me and my wife have been considering moving out of the hole we are in and now we are at the point where we are ready to do it. We currently live in hammond and I decided after growing up here it's going down hill fast plus it's far from a lot of work in my industry...we love the Lafayette area but that's only from visiting. So I'm looking for opinions on that area. I don't think we want to move into Lafayette but deff within 20 miles or so of it. So what's a good area near there to dig in and burry roots at? Any opinions/info appreciated. Btw if anybody knows of any 3 bedroom houses for rent or any jobs in the inspection field I'm your guy. I'm NDT certified across the board I can x ray and i have experience in welding and piping inspection.

You want to live in a subdivision or in the country?

If your looking for the sub division life and can afford it youngsville is pretty hard to beat. My personal preference when we get ready to move is the Maurice area. Preferably south. Meaux fishing lives in a really good area nearby too. Good schools, good people, and good proximity. Your 10 minutes from lafayette, and 20 from vbay.

I would like to live in the country but at the same time a subdivision might be healthy for meeting others in the area.

There are some nice country style subdivisions going up to the south and west of lafayette right now. Golden grain road has two really nice ones for sure.

I'm building both in youngsville and broussard and both are excellent for schools. most lots in the subdivisions are small so if you have alot of toys that may be a problem. if u want to live in the country the mire area which i live in is northwest of lafayette, the land is inexpensive and people are excellent. pm and i might be able to find a lot or property for you.

Always jobs in the inspection field around here. One of the better ones to work for is Oceaneering and Pro NDT. Lots of offshore work,mostly 24hr call.

Ya I've never done ndt offshore I dunno how I'd like the 24 hour call deal. But maybe I'd love it? How long do you typically go out for ?

I live in Broussard and really like it. I am 5 min from several meat shops, restraunts, and grocery stores. Pretty much anything I need right there and I can be at the mall in Lafayette or any other store within 20 minutes. The only downfall is I live in a subdivision with small lots. And don't worry about meeting people, everyone is pretty friendly

If it were me I would move to the SW side of Lafayette....Maurice, Meaux, Judice, Indian Bayou. Close enough to Lafayette if you need something, but you don't have to fight traffic on a daily basis to go to the store to pick up a few groceries. Lafayette is expanding SE faster than SW, so the Youngsville/Broussard area is only gonna get more congested over the next few years
