ACADIANA AT A GLANCE
South Louisiana’s nine-parish region, known locally as “Acadiana,” is located midway between Houston and New Orleans. The region offers a pro-business climate, loyal labor force, and diverse infrastructure, making the centrally located region a hot spot for business along the Gulf Coast. Known for its vibrant culture, food, and music, Acadiana has worked diligently to preserve its unique culture, which has positioned the region as a destination for tourism, education, and commerce. The region embraces its entrepreneurial, “wildcatter” spirit and is a leader in the production of our nation’s energy. Geographically, the hub of Acadiana, Lafayette, is located at the intersection of Interstate 10 and Interstate 49.
