I am interviewing for a position in Breaux Bridge. Any thoughts on this being a good area to live?

The food in Breaux Bridge and Lafayette is amazing. That’s all I got.

It’s also easier to get to Baton Rouge than if you lived in Lafayette where everything is a good ways off the interstate.

100% commute from Lafayette

Unless you’re looking to live on a lot of property and not a neighborhood

I would enjoy living there now but not when I was in my 20s or 30s.

My in laws have been living there since 1984. Just like anywhere else, it depends on which part of the city you live in. They live near the hospital and never really had any issues.

They're getting a Whataburger and a Pizza Village soon.

Man has that place changed since I was a kid in the 70s. We had a camp there and there weren't a lot of full time residents back then. It's amazing to see some of the large, nice homes there. And many of them are on the river side of the levee, which seems kind of nuts to me.

We lived in downtown Breaux Bridge about 25 years ago and loved it. But there’s a rhythm of life you have to get into to enjoy what’s actually there.

There's a lot neighborhoods being developed north of I10 because it's zoned for Cecilia schools (which is a huge improvement compared to Breaux Bridge). Be prepared for a culture shock, St. Martin Parish has one of the largest concentrations of people with Cajun ancestry percentage wise. They're great people but some of them can be a bit "clanish"."

Wife from there and her family still lives there.
Married my wife in the Catholic Church downtown.

When we first came back from California we stayed closer to Parks.
It was not that bad and pretty quiet.
Now they got a nicer Wal-mart, buck & Johnny's at old car dealership, and Reese street is a 4 lane compared to a 2 lane road.

Kids, I know at one time living in the Parks school district was the thing.
I am older and would probably live on the bank of the Bayou Teche within walking distance to downtown.
