In every town there are things only locals know. Lafayette is no exception. We’re a town set in the Deep South yet mixed with languages, customs and traditions from around the world. Some of our eccentricities are rooted in history. Some are just unexplainably Lafayette. Either way, we want you to feel at home, so here’s a short list of the more common local references everyone should know before visiting.
We can’t cover all of the cultural eccentricities you’ll find in Lafayette, but we hope these will help you feel more at home when you’re here.
