Lafayette Neighborhoods: Twin Oaks ~ Oakview

As I mentioned here, Lafayette has dozens of small neighborhoods stashed behind the main arterials. They are gorgeous.

This past spring, I was lucky enough to be invited to a King Cake party in one such neighborhood, which includes Twin Oaks, Oakview, and Green Oaks.

I may have gasped when I saw this:

Lafayette, Louisiana

And how can you not be charmed by this:

Lafayette, Louisiana

There's a large website that attracts people who are planning a move to Lafayette. Visitors invariably ask which areas in Lafayette they should consider, and somebody always mentions River Ranch. Now, River Ranch has its place in the scheme of things, but I'm amazed at how many respondents are silent on the grace and beauty of the old, established neighborhoods.

I can only shake my head in wonder.
