I love the changes that are already being made! The newly added park has made for many new adventures and community events that have been a blast! Broussard is honestly a beautiful, quiet, close knit town in Louisiana that I love with all my heart!

I've lived in Broussard for my entire life. It's a nice, little town right by Lafayette (a major city). Driving into Lafayette takes 10-20 minutes, so it isn't that bad considering that the cost of living is lower.
Broussard is gradually modernizing with today's time. New businesses and restaurants are starting to appear in the area. These new changes is making Broussard into a great city. One thing I do not like about Broussard and the surrounding area is how all the restaurants are so similar to each other. There are too many Chinese and Cajun restaurants out here. If a poke restaurant could do well out here I would have opened one already.
