Lake Charles Louisiana offers something for everyone. The low cost of living is a plus that ranks 5th lowest in the nation Large enough for residents to pick and choose where to live based on individual  preferences, but compact enough to provide convenient access to a number of key amenities.

The City of Lake Charles is located on the banks of the Calcasieu River in Southwestern Louisiana, and borders both Lake Charles, Prien Lake, Contraband Bayou and English Bayou that flow through various parts of the city.  The petrochemical industry is the mainstay economically for the parish and in the past decade, aerospace and gaming industries have broadened that base. With the abundance of streams, rivers and lakes nearby metropolitan Lake Charles is often referred to as “The Lake Area.” and “Sportsman’s Paradise”.   Hunters and nature lovers, epic waterfowl-hunting and bird-watching opportunities are all abound in the Sabine National Wildlife Refuge.


 Calcasieu Parish’s rich history combined with a modern, diversified economy and numerous recreational opportunities, outdoor activities and festivals to enjoy year round, make SWLA a wonderful place to live and visit.

If you ask long term  Lake Charles residents or those who have lived in other areas of the county what they enjoy most about Lake Charles living, they would probably share that they enjoy the laid back lifestyle and the friendly environment Southwest Louisiana offers.
