re: Moving to Lafayette

I live in Broadmoor. I can get to Scott pretty quickly using Ridge Road and Domingue road. The schools are great. Anything in the Woodvale, Broadmoor school district would be nice. Larger homes on bigger lots with mature oaks are what you will find in this area. Fatima is probably easier to get to than Cathedral Carmel. Both are good schools.

DO NOT MOVE TO DUSON! South side of Lafayette is where you want to be. I've lived here my whole life and can tell you after moving around to different areas of the city, I do not want live anywhere besides the south side.

Posted by NJud Actually the area marked "country" on this map is now one of the best areas around Lafyette to live.


If you like traffic, your neighbors 5 feet away, and every house in your neighborhood looking identical

Youngsville has some great neighborhoods and is growing very fast.

The Dulles area is nice if you want to be in that area. Be careful about the Ilse de Cannes area. West Park is right there but seems to escape the riffraff.

I will lease the house I described to you for 6 months...(I really don't want to be around Laffy this time of year to worry about the selling process)

I will deal for my spring/summer freedom!

re: Moving to Lafayette
As someone who lives in Lafayette and commutes to Youngsville, I would not live in Broussard/Youngsville and commute to Scott.

I go against the major flow of traffic to/from work. In the mornings the traffic on Youngsville highway coming to the Ambassador extension is terrible. Ambassador is terrible. Verot School Rd is terrible. East Broussard is terrible(though I heard they are going to do something about the intersection @ Kaliste Saloom soon).

Best areas are around Broadmoor/Woodvale/West Bayou/East Boyou as well as up to Dulles like a few have mentioned.

I make the Scott to Youngsville commute sometimes and can attest to it sucking.

Fin, you can't put the saint streets in the avoid section..definitely one of the best neighborhoods! I can understand north/east of university, but st. streets is legit.

The houses are hit or miss. Some can be real trouble.

face it, Laffy traffic is fricked up like a soup sandwich. like BR, there really is no good place to live if you have to drive.

Not bad, but during the morning rush traffic in Scott sucks.

Send them out to ESA. Best education in the area. Not cheap though
