I'm from Lafayette and I know Rayne isn't that bad. It's just a small lil country town like Scott or Duson. We used to go to Rayne sometimes just because they had a DQ.

My dad, uncles, aunts, cousins lived in Rayne all their lives and love it. I never had any problems in Rayne. I don't believe this article is accurate. Rayne, La is a lovely city with great festivals and entertainment. Great food and people live and work here. Thank you....
