I need a really compelling argument for Louisiana.

While I don't know much about the smaller towns of the other states it seems as if Southern Louisiana will offer much more in the way of culture and amazing food and jobs. Lafayette is a growing small to midsize city close by so it will have more job opportunities and things to do as well. I would opt for Broussard and Breaux Bridge over Pineville though. Good Luck where ever you go!

I like awesome food and relaxed culture, I just more care about stability and good jobs at this point.

I put in for work in Breaux Bridge, Lafayette and New Iberia today. I put in for one in Pineville, but that was for Cleco again.

As noted above. It kinda doesn't help I met a sassy little Cajun girl from Lafayette a little while back.

If you are mainly concerned about jobs, move to Lake Charles. The city is booming and there are jobs galore.

Yeah but I want culture too. Especially history as well because I've been reading up on the Civil War history for these two towns.

I'm going to be road tripping through CenLA and South Louisiana late in September. I decided against moving yet. So what things of interest is there to see in that part of the state?

From a CenLa perspective the Cane River National Heritage Area is I think pretty interesting & flavorful. Also the town of Natchitoches nearby is great. You might also be interested in the Civil War battlefields at Mansfield/Pleasant Hill (Red River Campaign). I like gardens & I'm fond of the Hodges Gardens State Park and the Louisiana State Arboretum at Chicot State Park (Ville Platte). Other sights in Cenla might include the Marksville State Historical Site (Indian mounds), Hotel Bentley in downtown Alexandria (love the lobby) & Diamond Grill across the street, Solomon Northrup (12 Years a Slave) Trail, Kent House (also Alexandria). Cenla is under the radar in many ways which is a bit of a shame as it has a kind of quiet distinction.

I do intend to go to the battlefields of Mansfield and Pleasant Hill.

But thanks for the other recommendations, I'll look into them.

Okay, given the hurricanes recently, between now and about the end of October would it be better to drive or fly out there this time of year?

The patterns have mostly shifted to east coast landfall threats. Go ahead and fly in if you want.
