    Breaux Bridge Reviews

    I moved away from Breaux Bridge to the city of Dallas thinking that it would better because it's a big city. That most definitely wasn't the case because you couldn't really be social. You couldn't just walk down the street and say hey to someone like you could in my small town. Living in a small town enhances your social skills and your understanding of people. It helps you to be able to communicate with many different types of people's. Also the saying it takes a village to raise a child comes in to play because if my mom had to go to work i could just go over to my neighbors. it helps your work ethic, because you'll have to go out and get what you need on your own. When you're working to get it on your own you get it by any means necessary!
    Review Breaux Bridge
    I have lived in Breaux Bridge for 18 years now. It is a quiet and semi-busy city, bustling with cajun culture. The downtown area is a great place to seek antique shops or go to an old-fashioned cafe. Breaux Bridge is known as the Crawfish Capital of USA, and we have pride in our title. Each year, Breaux Bridge hosts the Crawfish festival and many from outside of LA come to join or visit us to have a great time!
    I love Breaux Bridge because it is a city with an abundance of family values. The people are friendly and everyone knows you by name. The people are prayerful and committed to their religious Catholic beliefs. The city is a down home country feeling with just a short drive to other major cities. I believe that our schools have not kept up with the influx of people moving here so we do need improvements to our public schools.
