The best places to live are not necessarily the most expensive, y'all. I mean, I could probably live in a tent anywhere on he Gulf Coast, and still be happy. And I'm a big believer in the fact that every place has it's charms!

It's no secret that people love our beautiful Louisiana, everything from our people to art, food, music, and festivals. Folks come from all over the world to enjoy our hospitality. And if you live here, you know that some places are way cheaper to be in than others.

Only in Louisiana has put together a list of the cheapest, but best, places to live here in the Bayou State and I'm happy to say that several are right here in Acadiana! Some of their information came from Area Vibes, and was based on livability and cost of living. Check out the list below, but if you need more info, here are the official stats. These are not listed in any particular order, and we love all of them!
