<p>The food in the city is an experience. The city was named "Best Food Town in the USA" by Rand McNally/USA Today Best of the Road Rally. This is serious, people. Move to a new awesome apartment and then prepare to eat in bliss. From crawfish, shrimp, and crab cakes to sausage gumbo, grits, and stuffed grilled cheese (can you say "heavenly"?) this place will satisfy any good foodie's craving for delicious fare. And once you're done stuffing your face with that delicious grub? Go dance it off. This is Lafayette. Enjoy!</p>

Explore and Enjoy

<p>Lafayette is bursting with rich culture, an interesting history, and of course, amazing apartments. The Acadian Village is an awesome place to take a little trek back in time and see what life was like during the 19th century in Southwest Louisiana. You'll see historic homes on the very dramatic (and mysterious) bayou. You can also explore the interior of each historic building and see antique furniture as the places are decked out to look as they might have all those years ago. You can also explore the beautiful grounds. They host private functions too like weddings and corporate events, so you may even decide to throw your next big bash in this historic setting.</p>
