Hi all,

Anyone offer any help about Prairieville and surrounding areas?

My fiance is applying for a job in Prairieville(we currently live in Northeast WI near Green Bay).

We don't really know anything about the area at all. We of course know about the humidity(which I am going to hate ) and now from reading the threads, we know there are some heavy traffic issues.

My fiance is in his late 50's, I'm in my mid 40's. We are not looking for wild nightlife. We would like some kind of metropolitan area with stores and restaurants--stores meaning like a mall or a Walmart and of course a Walgreens or other pharmacy type place etc We are looking for a safe and QUIET living situation, probably like a condo or townhouse to rent. My fiance does not love driving so a short commute would be best. Although as long as he doesn't have to drive in snow, it should be ok Probably under $1000/mo sounds right. Between Baton Rouge and New Orleans so we can get away on weekends and have some fun.

I will be looking for work in health care (currently I work in a group home with developmentally-disabled adults).

We have no pets and no kids. We like good food and good music, but are kind of homebodies. That's why a quiet place to live is best. Near a hospital and an airport and/or Amtrak station would be ideal. I will be going back to WI to visit family quite a bit.

Thanks anyone who can give us some help It is much appreciated!

The rental market in Prairieville is nearly non-existent. I think Quarters at Dutchtown only sells condominiums rather than lease them. South Baton Rouge is nearby with a mall, hospitals, and dining.

Yes I agree. You won't find any rental markets in Prairieville. However my best friend living in Baton Rouge lived in Prairieville when he was a boy and his high school was in Baton Rouge. I think it's only around 20 miles away so you can find plenty of rentals in the suburbs of Baton Rouge and won't have any issue with the commute. You may want to also check Gonzales for rentals.

Whatever the case welcome to Louisiana!

Have a blessed day in the Lord.

Default Still looking for info on relocating to Prairieville from WI

Hi all,

We are a step closer now to making this change. Is there anyone else that can offer advice on the Prairieville area? Towns maybe 5 miles or less away? Looking for a condo/townhouse, rental price probably under $1200/mo. Near a grocery store and a pharmacy and a medical clinic would be really helpful!

We would really like something SAFE and QUIET with friendly neighbors...like most people are looking for I guess, right?

Thanks to the 2 folks who replied to us!

Like before, you won't find condo/townhouses in Prairieville. There are a set of apartments on Hwy 74 in Geismar, a few miles away. They are nice, but there are alot of kids that live there. There are some older duplexes around Prairieville but no nicely built new townhouses like I'd imagine you want. The closest thing I can think of would be Perkins Rowe's apartment/condos. They fall in that price range and you're in walking distance of a Fresh Market, a couple medical clinics, and a CVS. It will not be quiet as its part of an entertainment development. It's the closest thing to what you want, although it is in Baton Rouge, not Prairieville, but it's very close.
