I have been living in Jeanerette since I was born. Jeanerette is a small city in Iberia Parish. It is known as "Sugar City" to some people, it had a population of 5,530 in 2010 according to the census, It is mostly African American but we do have a little diversity in our town. Jeanerette doesn't really have that many places for jobs. Jeanerette does have more than club in the town and the nightlife could be good for some. The schools in Jeanerette are some good schools with well-rounded teachers. I would consider Jeanerette a very affordable place to live. We do have more than one apartment complex in the area.

There are many changes I would like to see in Jeanerette. The city needs more leaders and role models for the younger generation. Also, more stores, eating places, and fun recreational buildings, are needed in Jeanerette.
Jeanerette is a small town which I love; everyone knows everyone. For awhile we only had a Sonic for fast-food, but now we have a Subway as well. Although I do love the town I wouldn't want to live directly in town limits; I think I'm just a little bias on the country life. Even with all the small town perks sometimes you need a bigger town so we have New Iberia which is only 10 miles away.
