Thibodaux is great place to live. It has been developing in recent years. The town is a delight and the nature, trees and bayous are beautiful. As Thibodaux is a southern state, issues with racism still exist; nevertheless, I'm happy to report that I've noticed major improvements and find people of all races being quite friendly toward one another. Your neighbors will wave to you, and the food is great. Come visit Thibodaux! :)
