    If you want to get out on the water really fast, choose somewhere close to Terrebonne Parish (Houma/Thibodaux area). Fishing out of Cocodrie and Dularge is always good. Hunting in the area is also very good.

    The farthest away I would suggest is Baton Rouge and able to be close to hunting/fishing.

    The food is second to none and friendly people are everywhere.

    Depending on what job field you are in and what type position you're looking for will most likely determine which area is best for you to settle in.

    Good luck! Everyone I know that visits wants to come back often.

    I'd suggest Abbeville, LA. You'll be close to the coast, and of course Louisiana has more water than any other state in the country, so you'll be able to do some awesome freshwater fishing/trapping as well. Next September hook up with me and do some alligator huntin'. :thumbsup:

    Spring, TX.

    The first of my family to come to the USA entered through New Orleans during the Civil War and eventually set up a Sugar Cane operation in Vermillion Parrish near Abbeville.

    I've always wanted to go see the area.

    It's pretty historic around there. Also, Erath LA (where I'm from) is where the Acadian museum is.




    Oh, and learn the Mardi Gras Song...an absolute necessity if you live in South Louisiana. :cool:

    (ETA- Found the one I filmed)

    This thread is making me home sick. My wife and I have been talking about moving back for a few weeks now. She's waiting to hear back on a lead with some good friends who own a chain of markets - you can guess which one.

    As soon as we can nail something down, or I can find something, we are moving in a heart beat. We love Texas, but it aint Louisiana.

    People come from all over the world to eat that very dish in my pic. It's not for the culinary-challenged...it's for people who want flavor.

    Actually crawfish season is November to July so we are getting close to the official start of that season. Fresh Gulf oysters are REALLY good right now! I had some last week that were spectacular!

    I was at Randol's in Lafayette about a month ago havin a beer and listening to the live band, and there was a table of about 10 people that came all the way from Russia eating gumbo and etouffee.



    That's the 2nd season. Crawfish peaks in March. And yes, the oysters right now are awesome.

    Pretty much what he said. Go South about 20 miles to Abbeville and you'll be living in a nice little town that will be cheaper, but close to the best city in the state (Lafayette) and also close to the gulf.
