Have read most of the posts but looking for more. I am considering a job promotion to the Lafayette area. We are 50, with an 11 yr old. Both professionals, looking for golf and tennis community, price range of homes in the $500k range. Latests on schools, Florida is bad so I am used to the private option if necessary. Any beach worth going to, lakes etc. Thanks

You have a few options here, but LeTriomphe Golf & Country Club would be my starting point. After a quick spot-check on prices, they are within your range, but I'm guessing the association fees will be considerable. And once a year, the Louisiana Open on the Nationwide Tour takes over the course. Not sure if that's good or bad from your standpoint, but it's traditionally a well-attended event.

An excellent private school in nearby Cade is The Episcopal School of Acadiana. I'm not familiar with the public schools in that area, but they might be worth a look as public education in this general area tends to be decent or better.

Again, Le Triomphe is just one of several options available in the Lafayette area. Of course, you don't need to live there to play there, but home ownership within the gates includes membership. A Realtor can provide in depth info on all the other options.

I can't really recommend any beaches in Louisiana when considering what you are accustomed to. Gulf Shores, AL is probably the closest along those lines, but since you asked, we do have them. Personally, I'd hit I-10 eastbound and make a weekend of it.

Regarding lakes? I think you'll find this area interesting, if not a bit overwhelming with all the freshwater options. Too many to mention here, so I'll just say that I don't think you'll be disappointed...

Good luck!
