Abbeville Reviews

5 reviews
All Categories
The small town convenience. Lafayette and New Iberiais within 20 minutes of Abbeville. There is a lot of shopping in Lafayette including a grocery store that originated in New Orleans. Abbeville has a super Walmart, several fitness centers, a hospital,nursing home, Lowe's and great restaurants in Downtown Abbeville.
Review Abbeville
The festivals are nice. However, there are constant crime around the city. This has always been downfall of abbeville. The festivals here consist of the cattle festival and the giant omelet festical.
Abbeville is a small and quiet town, everything is close together and is easy to get to. I've been living here since 2007 and it's been fairly enjoyable. Though the schools could be improved it is not that bad living here.
