Facts About Louisiana
Information for Travelers
Louisiana is a state in the southeastern US on the Gulf of Mexico.
This is a state where time passes more slowly and life is more living than doing.
Its history as a melting pot of French, African, American and French Canadian cultures is reflected in its Creole and Cajun cultures.
Even the name Louisiana evokes a feeling of sultry summer nights with the chirping of cicadas nearby and the laughter of friends and family over a table with savory southern dishes.
One of the best places to experience the state's charms and soak up some Creole culture is Crescent City, better known as New Orleans.
The world famous Mardi Gras brings fun to people as they dress up and parade through the streets.
The French Quarter celebrates the state's history and is a great place to get lost in the knowledge that no matter where you go, a great meal and good weather await.
The largest city, New Orleans, is known for its colonial-era French Quarter, raucous Mardi Gras festival, jazz music, Renaissance-style St. Louis Cathedral, and wartime exhibits in the massive Monday National Museum World War.
