The small town convenience. Lafayette and New Iberiais within 20 minutes of Abbeville. There is a lot of shopping in Lafayette including a grocery store that originated in New Orleans. Abbeville has a super Walmart, several fitness centers, a hospital,nursing home, Lowe's and great restaurants in Downtown Abbeville.
Abbeville is a small and quiet town, everything is close together and is easy to get to. I've been living here since 2007 and it's been fairly enjoyable. Though the schools could be improved it is not that bad living here.
Abbeville is a family oriented town. Focused on spending quality time and enjoying great food. In Cajun country you can find a lot of Historical sites to visit and see. As you drive around this quaint little town you see many beautiful sights from Churches to gorgeous trees and waterways.
