First, a little intro music: La la la la Lafayette! Like it? On second thought, don’t answer that. Welcome to Lafayette, a pretty city hopping, hooting, and hollering on the Vermilion River in the state of Louisiana. This is Cajun country, folks, so you’ve got Cajun and Creole culture and, ready for the yum? Cajun food. Yummmmm.
Lafayette is a large city that covers a lot of space and because of this your day-to-day errands will require a car. But don’t worry, if you want to get out and do a bit of shopping, the downtown area of the city is very walkable. The Lafayette Transit System has a number of bus routes, but because of it's limited hours it will not be the best option for most.
