My wife and I are wanting to move back to la. We both are from the BR area. Would like some info from those who are familiar with both areas. We both love good food and are family oriented. We have a 19 month old daughter and working on number two. I love to hunt and saltwater fish so both areas are good for that. I have a 4 yr. nursing degree with nearly 20 yrs. critical care exp. and my wife has a masters in social work.

I dont know Mandeville that well, but from what one of my friends who lives in that area and goes to school here tells me, there is a lot more to do in Lafayette and the surrounding area as a city and its family friendly. But as a general region obviously more is going on over in BR/New Orleans.
It is a faster pace over there, although Lafayettes pace is definitely not as slow as it used to be.

The Northshore is suburban and Lafayette is its own city. There really aren't any "bad" areas of the Northshore. There are some in Lafayette, but not many. There is almost no nightlife on the Northshore. There's a lot in Lafayette. The Northshore is less than an hour from one of America's most interesting and lively cities. Lafayette is the center of the entire area. Both have stellar public school systems. Both are conservative. Both have the South Louisiana love of life.
