We are pretty much open to anything as long as it's safe. I would like a yard though for my children to play in. I've been looking more in the youngsville area recently but the rent seems to get higher there! I've come to realize that a yard and more open space is more important to me than new construction. Im guessing we are going to have to look outside the city to find that. What do you mean about the Internet? Are the services not as good in the outer areas? I live outside the city limits now and we have mediacom. It has its problems but the speed seems ok. Is it similar there? Also we are not looking to buy at this time since we are not sure how long we will be there. I appreciate everyone's responses!

Lafayette has a municipally owned fiber optic network. Its only within city limits and offers up to 1 gigabit speeds (like google fiber)
outside of that you are at the mercy of other ISPs and slower speeds

Lafayette is a wonderful place to live. The people here are very nice and welcoming. You'll love the southern hospitality! The food here is amazing! I can't leave out the festivals. There is Downtown Alive, Rhythms on the River, The Lafayette Market at the HorseFarm, etc. There's always something to do.
I usually take my children to the South Regional Library. There are so many activities, including story time and a summer reading program. The main library (Downtown) is now open for business. It was recently renovated. Barnes and Noble also has story time.
Youngsville is a very nice area, but so is Broadmoor. Both areas are great for raising a family. It just depends on your personal preference. LYSA is a youth soccer association here in Lafayette. You can visit the website for more information: lysasoccer.com
Paul Breaux Middle School and Lafayette High School are the schools for gifted students. The schools in the Broadmoor and Youngsville areas are probably the best in Lafayette.
I totally understand what you are going through, I may be headed from here to NY due to my husband's job. I hope this helps a little. Good luck!

Thank you for your reply! We have actually moved here and are off Verot School Road. I have a new question. My child will possibly be enrolled at Milton Elementary. Anyone have any thoughts or opinions of this school? We have only been here a week and love it already! It's so easy to navigate here and the traffic is not at all bad compared to where we came from! I am so excited to settle in and become a part of the community! Good luck to you and your husband in NY! I'm sure you will love it!

Thats excellent to hear! Lafayette has a lot more going on than you may think.
A great site I like to point people to is Developing Lafayette - Developing Lafayette is Lafayette's development blog.
really useful for finding out whats being built around here.
by this time next year for example there will be a massive Costco and shopping complex off Ambassador and Kaliste Saloom.
lots of cool stuff going on here.
Unfortunately I dont have experience with Milton, but thats a nice area. Pretty quiet.

One of my teacher friends has a child that attends Milton and she loves it! I tend to forget about that one. I've heard really good things about Milton.
That is a great area to live in! It's nice to have everything close by. I'm glad to know that you're off to a good start.

Thank you! I really feel like my family is going to be happy here. We hope to settle in and really become part of the community which was not always easy in our former city. It was very cliquey there and hard if you weren't a part of it. I've also managed to sign my daughter up for soccer so we're excited about everything starting. I'm glad to hear that about Milton Elem. Thank you all so much for your replies and help. If there is ever anything cool going on in the city please post in case I miss it! Looking forward to seeing how Lafayette does Mardi Gras. It really does feel like home already! Love all the donut shops and coffee places! And the bookstores!
