Kaplan Reviews

I have been living in Kaplan, since I was born! My mom and dad were also raised here! It is a great town to raise children in. There are 3 public parks throughout the town. There is always people outside weather they are riding their bike, waking their dog, or just taking a stroll around the beautiful town. One disadvantage of living in Kaplan is that it is so small that there aren't many job opportunities. The population in Kaplan is so low that it is hard to keep a business open. Over all Kaplan is a wonderful place to live filled with loving people!

Born and raised here. Kaplan may be small, but it is full of that small-town charm that many people dream of. Come for the small-town charm, stay for the Cajun culture.
A very small and tight-knit, and safe community, Kaplan is an amazing place to start and raise and family.
