Lafayette's a great place to live...and a great place to visit! The Hub City is one of 20 nominees for "Best Summer Weekend Escape" in USA Today's 10 best Reader's Poll. You can vote until May 26th, and you can vote once a day.

Lafayette's a great place for a weekend getaway, with wonderful bed & breakfasts, and some of America's best restaurants. The Hub City has been named the South's Tastiest Town by Southern Living Magazine. A boat tour of the Atchafalaya Basin is a memorable experience. There's the second Saturday Art Walk, a great live music scene, and the beauty of nearby Rip Van winkle gardens, not to mention the warmth of the people. I came to Lafayette for a visit...35 years ago.
