Located at the intersection of I-10 and I-49, in the heart of Cajun Country, Lafayette is known as the Hub City of Southwest Louisiana. Lafayette is the center of Acadiana, a nine-parish region known for its fresh-from-the-water seafood, frequent festivals, and Zydeco and Cajun music.
Lafayette’s growing economy is fueled not only by its traditional oil and gas exploration, production and related service companies, but also by robust healthcare, technology, and tourism industries.
Lafayette is the home of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, hosting a student body of approximately 20,000 students, who proudly proclaim themselves to be Ragin' Cajuns.
