Living in Bayou Blue, LA is okay. It’s not perfect, but if you’re left with no option it might just do for your situation. To start off, the crime rate is awful just like most other places in Louisiana. Considering how much I pay to live here and how long it took me to find a decent place to stay, I would expect the crime rate to be lower or the cost of my rent to go way down.
Employment is average but I would do your research on that before moving here. Education in our area is actually okay considering everything else that goes around outside. So, if you’re moving here with no choice and you’re raising a family, you’ll be happy to know they’ll be getting a pretty good education and will have great choices. Other than that, there’s a ton of fun stuff to do around and I’m never bored on the weekend; whether I’m chilling out in my home and getting some work done, or wanting to go out shopping or go for a coffee.
