The differences between them are many. DS has been booming the last 5 years or so as more people have fled East Baton Rouge parish for Livington parish for better schools. Livingston parish schools are some of the highest rated in the state, EBR schools are some of the worst. Housing values have soared, especially since hurricane Katrina and the whole place feels crowded to me now when I visit. Still, it is a good community.

Sorrento is much smaller in population and size. It is further away from BR (30 miles or so) and feels more rural. It is located with easy interstate access to either BR or New Orleans.

Sorrento is very much a small rural town. DS is becoming more like a large urban area.

Denham Springs has a WalMart, Ryans, Antique Mall and restored old city chock-a-block with antiques. Brand new subdivisions everywhere.

Sorrento has... um... a traffic light, a wrecker company and a gas station. Any questions?

The I-12 commute (which you would face from Denham) is awful, and there always seems to be a wreck.

I-10 (which you would face frmo Sorrento) is getting bad, but the traffic dissipates pretty quickly after the first 9Prairieville) exit in Ascension Parish.

I do think that Sorrento will be a growth spot in 5-10 years. Its equal distance between NO and BR helps.
