According to voters in a USA Today poll, Lafayette, La., is the best city in the country for a “College Town Weekend.” The result comes after four weeks of voting on the newspaper’s web-based subsidiary, 10Best.com.
Lafayette was the only Louisiana city to make the top 10 list, but some other southern cities also earned rankings, such as Oxford, Miss., Fredericksburg, Va. and Fayetteville, Ark. Fabulous food and culture are the main reasons for the win.
“Lafayette, La., has taken top honors with its fabulous food, music and culture. Located an hour west of Baton Rouge and two hours from New Orleans, this lively college town makes for a fun weekend getaway.”
