I'm not sure how I missed this one but it's great to see Lafayette shine.

We look at lots of videos and other digital content as part of our jobs here at Townsquare Media, but we can't possibly see everything. I somehow missed this video made by Buzzfeed and sponsored by Chevrolet. It involves a Lafayette native returning home from Los Angeles to visit with his longtime best - friend. They travel to various spots in Lafayette in a Chevy Blazer, including Vermilionville and Prejean's.

As someone pointed out in the comments on YouTube, it's great to see a part of Lousiana in the spotlight other than New Orleans and Mardi Gras. The video is beautifully shot and makes you want to run out to visit Vermilionville and the Jungle Gardens at Avery Island even if you've been before. It's been a long time since I've visited either one and this video has me planning a family visit to both once the weather turns cooler.
