Louisiana Holidays

Louisiana is a southeaster U.S. state lying on the Gulf of Mexico. Its history as a melting pot of French, African, American and French-Canadian cultures is reflected in its Creole and Cajun cultures. 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 at the huge National WWII Museum.

Louisiana holidays

 Louisiana’s State Parks offer outstanding opportunities for outdoor experiences. Enjoy superb fishing, boating, paddling and water sports. Or get up close with nature on biking and hiking trails, where birdwatching is some of the finest in the country. Numerous waterways—from lakes and bayous to swamps and lagoons—lie amid the verdant hills and rich marshlands. You'll find excellent camping and picnic areas, including well-equipped cabins and RV parks.

Break away from the highway and take a road trip down one of Louisiana's 18 scenic byways. From historic treasures and music festivals, to country kitchens and coastal wetlands teeming with wildlife, each drive offers you an authentic taste of Louisiana food, music, culture and natural beauty.

Louisiana is the place to create beautiful memories that will last a lifetime. This fun-loving state has a style of its own, formed by the collision of cultures for over 300 years. As you travel through the state historical influences will come alive through the music, architecture, culture and culinary delights highlighting the influences of French, Spanish, African, Cajun, Creole and British settlers. World-class music, spirited fairs and festivals ensure Louisiana has something for everyone. The birthplace of Jazz and a natural melting pot for all types of music, here your toe will always find a beat to tap to and a rhythm to bring you alive. In New Orleans you can listen to live music 24 hours a day from the clubs and bars to the street theatre in the French Quarter. From a local deli or coffee house to a fine dining restaurant, food is prepared and enjoyed with equal enthusiasm and excellence – sample dishes unique to Louisiana from spicy jambalaya to sweet Bananas Foster.

Louisiana brings history alive through its fabulous architecture - from Sportsman’s Paradise in the North, Natchitoches, Lafayette and Lake Charles through to the Garden district and French Quarter in New Orleans all telling the story of an exotic, rich and colourful history.
