I love Prairieville, it is a lovely little town with everything you need. Fast food to nice restaurants, corner stores to malls, Prairieville is big enough to cover everything without becoming overwhelming, and it's growing every day!
Great location not too far from Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Close to many popular stores and restaurants. Great safe schools, communities and quality of life. Place for great child development and productivity. Jobs are available and families can grow.
