Pocketed between the Gulf of Mexico, Mississippi and Texas, Louisiana is a dynamic southern state with a mash of cultures. Southern Louisiana is the main attraction for vacationers and culture vultures. Strong French, Latino, and Caribbean influences can be seen throughout Louisiana, especially in Acadiana and New Orleans. While at one time there were two distinct forms of cooking, Cajun and Creole, the two have been merged into a tantalizing mixture that no foodie can resist. Dishes like spicy jambalaya, grilled catfish and dirty rice are staples in the unique restaurants of this lively state.
Some of Louisiana's must-see attractions and activities include:
The Mardi Gras festival, held every March in New Orleans, is the ideal time to visit if you've never been to Louisiana before.
For your accommodations, consider a vacation rental such as a condo if you're in the city or a cabin rental if you want closer to the bayou. These choices make more convenient, spacious and private alternatives to getting a hotel room and are ideal for families, groups and couples alike.
Louisiana is bordered by Arkansas, Texas and Mississippi to the north, west and east respectively, and all three states offer their own unique slice of southern life to visitors. The warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico beckon beyond the state's southern shores, so you can enjoy a relaxing cruise or head down to the Caribbean quickly and easily.
