Finding the perfect city to call home is one of the biggest decisions you can make. From proximity to music and entertainment venues to the best schools to diversity in restaurants, each city has a certain factor that makes its stand apart from the rest.
Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Stacker compiled a list of the fast-growing cities in Louisiana, ranging from small towns in northern regions to popular port cities along the Gulf Coast and everywhere in between.
So which Louisiana town is the fast-growing city in the state?
It should come as no surprise that New Orleans was named the city with the fastest growth compared to other towns across the state. The Crescent City's popularity as a top tourist destination paired with its legendary musical and cultural history rooted deep in the state makes this a place that many people want to call home.
