I don’t even stop for gas in Jennings because it gives off major Deliverance vibes.

Pro: there’s a hospital in case the serial killer doesn’t finish the job

Pros: Cajun country, so the people are mostly very nice and the food is solid. Close to oil industry jobs. Has its own hospital. No traffic. Very low costs of living - easy to get a house with a couple of acres.

Cons: Well known for a string of murders that were "unsolved" but not really. That stretch seems to get more tornados than the rest of south Louisiana.

I can't speak for Jennings specifically, but the area between Breaux Bridge and Lake Charles is one of the friendliest parts of the US.

I just really like it because the people are awesome.

Cons: a whole lot of meth and sex trafficking and police covering up a serial killer

Jennings does have a creepy vibe. But it's more "True Detective" than "Deliverance".

The rural areas along I-12 are more "Deliverance".

I know it's more heavy into rice farms and not corn, but otherwise the typography in that part of Louisiana feels like western Iowa.

Flat, not as many trees as you'd expect, roads make a rural grid pattern, and agriculture almost as far as you can see in every direction.

Also EVERYONE has a truck, a trailer, a boat, and a dog.

Very rural true Cajun People. Lots of good fishing and hunting close by. Low cost of living, good food. But I still moved away from that area I grew up in.

JHS grad here. It's a decent small town but why Jennings specifically? There are areas nearby with much better schools, e.g., Hathaway, Iota.

ETA Their school buildings are great. High school is only about 20 years old and they just built a new k-8th. It's the demographics of Jennings that's the problem.

Crowley is probably better, if you really want to live in a "city."

Even better option would be a few acres around Morse or Mermentau.

If you have school aged kids I’d probably live in Hathaway instead of Jennings (or even Lake Arthur, Elton, or Laccassine). I’m assuming you are looking at a job in Jennings. Not a whole lot to do in the immediate area so you may even want to live closer to either Lake Charles or Lafayette and drive in to Jennings instead.

Filters of places to live (in my experience)

#1 - City is written into at least one song (preferably a good song)

If not, you are on your own.
