Lafayette is in the running in AAA Southern Traveler’s 'Best of the South' annual poll and needs your vote to win. Categories include favorite big city, favorite small town, best place to unwind and relax, and best bowl of gumbo/fried chicken/catfish. We know Lafayette is the South’s best place to eat, but we have to get the votes to prove it to Biloxi, Dallas, Little Rock, New Orleans and Savannah. The poll is online through April 11.  The results will be published in the 2014 July/August issue of AAA Southern Traveler.

We’ve already been named Best Food City (Rand McNally/USAToday, 2011), Tastiest Town of the South (Southern Living, 2012), and a Top 10 Foodie City (, 2013).
