Gueydan is amazing if you know what you are getting into. This area is rural. There is a small local museum, but other than that there is little culture. The people are amazing though. If you want a quite place to retire where you can sit on your porch for hours, trade stories with your neighbors, and live your life in peace, Gueydan is right for you.

Drugs is the main problem in our area, but we have a awesome K-9 unit that is constantly busted people and getting them off the streets!
Our town is kind of smaller and we don't have many community activities. However, there are larger cities surrounding our vicinity that host several large events, so we mainly gravitate towards them.
