An out-of-towner posted on the r/Acadiana subreddit, asking for advice on moving to Lafayette.

The responses were varied and contained pills that were hard to swallow. One of the responses contained links covering the "Brain Drain" that Louisiana is experiencing. Others mentioned racism, poor education, a lack of scenery, poor economy, and the "Good Ol' Boy" network.

On the plus side of moving here, it appears that the "Food" category tops the list. Followed by the friendliness of the people, the festivals/nightlife/music, and the beauty of the area.

Thinking of moving to Lafayette. What should we know about the place? from r/Acadiana

If someone were to ask you for advice on moving to the Lafayette area, what would you tell them? Would you recommend moving here, or would you advise against it?
