Friendly and vivid today, Lafayette saw many pressures throughout its history. From the very beginning the area was colonized by French and then the British. They introduced to the city Cajun culture, but it was born out due to radical climate and swampy territory. New comers took huge efforts to survive in such unusual conditions. After the Revolutionary War Lafayette was renamed from Vermilionville to honor America's great French ally the Marquis de Lafayette.
When the Spanish came to the city in the late 1700s, they reshaped it into farmland with slavery-based agriculture. This led to a strong African American presence and influence within the city. By the 20th century Lafayette entered it with rich cultural splendor, but exhausted with agriculture. Eventually, the city swapped farming for service-based industries like insurance, oil, gas processing and tourism.
Tourists adore Lafayette for its world-class dining and sophisticated cuisine served in the local restaurants. But what attracts the most to the city is its small town charm with familiar faces at the streets, safe night strolls and friendly locals on the watch for you in the city. People in Lafayette are known for cheerful celebrations, hospitality and filling dining and relaxed lifestyle.
