Louisiana Vacation Rentals
Louisiana culture began long before the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. Signs of Spanish and French rule are apparent in the state's architecture, cuisine & lingo. Among the many attractions, New Orleans at Mardi Gras is not to be missed. Check out a jazz combo while you visit the French Quarter or go for a riverboat ride on the Mississippi. While New Orleans will give you a taste of Cajun Country, you can get a full helping nearby on a swamp tour in the bayou. First driven out of France and then Canada before settling in Louisiana, the Cajuns have produced memorable cuisine: Dig into a bowl of gumbo or Cajun Catfish!
