What do you like about Lake Charles? Living on a lake & river with many waterways & Gulf of Mexico nearby.
What do you dislike about Lake Charles? Living in a city that was hit by Hurricane Rita in 9/05.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? By bodies of water.
How expensive is it? Below normal.
Is it safe? No. There are crackheads everywhere. I got 3 bicycles that were locked up stolen.
How is the weather? Pleasant in winter but steamy humid in summer with high temps.
Additional thoughts? Since Hurricane Rita hit, this town hasn't been the same. One big casino is shutting it's doors permanently which will greatly reduce revenue generated by the city. Since the hurricane, people are hurting in many ways. There are mostly laborer and truckdriver jobs but most other jobs are low-paying like fast-food and nurses aide. Since the hurricane, there are no places to rent and those that do become available have the rent jacked up real high. People aren't friendly like they were and the general effect is "wounded".
