The Heart of I-10 


Quality of Life

Jeff Davis Parish, the “Heart of I-10” located between Lake Charles and Lafayette, LA and Houston, TX and New Orleans, LA provides the opportunity to live, work and play in a small-town and stay connected to the larger cities within 30 minutes to an hour ½ away.

Jeff Davis Parish is uniquely situated on I-10 and partners with both the Southwest Louisiana Regional Alliance consisting of the parishes of Calcasieu, Cameron, Beauregard and Allen and One Acadiana with nine parishes including Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St Martin, St Mary and Vermilion parishes. This partnership allows all parishes to work together on political and infrastructure issues and gives a greater voice for state and federal dollars for our regions.
