Lafayette, LA.-based United Country Real Estate | Wildlife Land Group specializes in land, recreational properties, farms, homes, hunting land and commercial properties for sale throughout Lafayette Parish and elsewhere within Louisiana’s Acadiana Region.
One of the largest cities in the area and the fourth-biggest city in Louisiana, Lafayette definitely has some dense urban concentrations. Almost 247,000 residents (as of 2021) call Lafayette Parish home and the city of Lafayette accounts for around 126,000 of the parish’s population. But like the surrounding parishes it also offers plenty of rural areas colored by low hills, prairies, marshes and bayous.
Lafayette is sometimes called the “Heart of Acadiana,” referring to its location in a 22-parish portion of southern Louisiana. This is the broadest definition of the region though many people define Acadiana more narrowly as the seven to nine parishes directly around Lafayette.
Parishes such as Acadia, Lafayette, Evangeline, St. Landry and Vermilion are among those under this latter definition of what’s considered “Cajun Country.” The food, music and culture associated with Cajun and Creole heritage stared here, and more than 11% of the population reportedly speaks French or Creole French.
This part of Louisiana is economically and culturally diverse, with manufacturing and information technology emerging in recent years as major industries. Not to be outdone, agriculture remains a $3 billion dollar industry in the state, driven by crops such as soybeans, cotton and sugarcane, and livestock like poultry, cattle and goats.
