Tile flooring, tan countertops, wood cabinets and black and white appliances are in the open kitchen. The bedroom has large closets, and the bath has a walk-in-shower.

About 90 minutes north of the coast in southwestern Louisiana, Sulphur (population 21,000) sits along the Calcasieu River between Houston, Texas and New Orleans. The town is named for the sulphur mines that operated in the area in the early- to mid-1900s. Even today, a few petrochemical plants operate outside of town.
Sulphur is spread out with a somewhat non-descript downtown. Many businesses, including tasty Cajun eateries serving boudin (a blend of pork cooked down with onions, peppers, seasonings, & cooked rice), Jambalaya and gumbo, are found along one of the three main roads. Neighborhoods are leafy and peppered with ranch ramblers.
When combined with the town of Lake Charles next door, the area has a plethora of festivals and events, including the Louisiana Pirate Festival, the Starks Mayhaw Festival and the Gulf Coast Shrimp and Jazz Festival. Locals also enjoy a couple of casinos and Friday night high school football games.
It is worth noting that Sulphur has seen its share of hurricanes. Laura in 2020 brought downed trees and some flooding.
