I'm relocating to Lafayette next month for a new job, and I'm searching for a nice place to live. I would like a 1 or 2 bedroom in the $700-850 range. I have looked into Peppertree, Diamond Lakes and Ansley Walk. Has anyone stayed there before? If so, how would you rate your experience? It would be a plus if the community is diverse in terms of race.

Also, where are the best restaurants and bars in town? Is city a good place for young professionals? I've read so many mixed reviews of city, I'm not sure what to expect anymore.

There are quite a lot of good apartments throughout the southside of the city. I havent experienced many of them, so I can't really describe any of them but there are a multitude of newer looking units to be found.

As for what you've heard, it might depend on when people visited Lafayette. Lafayette is very much on the rise. These are very exciting times for it. There is even a mixed use development being built right by downtown to allow people to live closer to it and experience a more inner city lifestyle.
Its a city with affordable high speed internet throughout, increasing high tech job sector, thriving industry, excellent foods of many ethnicities, and wonderful festivals. Lafayette is also working very hard to create new infrastructure in the city. Its got a very progressive mindset and I honestly think you might enjoy what it offers.

Well LUS actually charges about $55/month in my case and that gets me the 50 mbps speed, but I actually have speed tested up to 100 mbps regularly.
Its incredibly fast and reliable.

Do not live in peppertree or diamond lakes...Definitely look on the South side off of Kaliste Saloom; Plantation, Plantation Crossing, Ansley Walk, and Audubon Lake.
