It is an amazing city and a great place for new couples starting a family. I've lived here all my life and I enjoy the atmosphere and the incredible southern hospitality. The commute to work and school is between five to twenty minutes with light traffic. It is very convenient. The schools are also amazing Ernest Gallet Elementary was built around twenty-five years ago and still looks brand new and has amazing teachers. A high school was just built also called Southside High and just opened in 2017. It's just a great town!

I have lived here all my life and have never really had anything to complain about. This is a peaceful, small town that seems to have everything you would need right sown the road. The only problem I have seen started when the new sports complex was built right by my house. After it was built, our quiet nights were filled with loud soccer and baseball games and bright lights.
I have lived in the town of Youngsville since I was 6 years old. Though it is now a city, it was a rural place to live that has transformed in the last 15 years into a urban area. We were named the safest place to live in the United States. The sports complex is the new spot to be for we are trying to push for a healthier community. Our shops are cute and quante and contiue to keep adding. Our city is expanding in a industry way for the emenities we have are now rivaling with the city of Lafayette. The school system is great here to where people are sceaming to get in. A new high school was built like a movie screen school which is the only A level school in the state.
