Rayne, LA is known as "The Frog Capital of the World." It has a population not exceeding 10,000 and it a very small, quaint hometown in Southern Louisiana. I believe the history of Rayne is very interesting, traveling back to when we were identified as "Poupeville," shipping tens of thousands of frogs all over the world from our one little train depot. But traveling through the City now, a lot of it's history is removed. Where once was old family convenient stores are now multi-state chain stores. As is anywhere in the world today, it is no longer to safe to walk the streets alone at night. But if you look deep into our little city, you can still find old-timers who love to tell stories of "way back when...".

Rayne is a small, but pretty town in southern Louisiana. It is well kept and very family friendly. Rayne has multiple schools in the area, both public and private and the businesses in the area of very supportive of the high school athletics. However, there are a few gangs that hang out in the town and can cause potential dangers.
It’s nice place to raise a family, and most people are friendly and very helpful. I would say the only thing I would improve would be the roads, but that is most of the roads in Louisiana. It’s not too far from my work and school in Crowley, so that is always a plus to not have a long commute with such a busy schedule.
