Enjoy the Eclectic Appeal of Louisiana
Louisiana isn’t all about debauchery and voodoo. The Bayou State is also known for good old-fashioned family fun, including sports events, outdoor activities, and guided tours. Book a vacation rental in the heart of New Orleans or outside the city and beat the hotel crowds and prices. There are several Louisiana house rentals available that are large enough to comfortably accommodate your group, whatever the season. Pet friendly rentals make it so you don't have to board the dog and cat.
Football season is exciting in New Orleans, home of the world-famous indoor stadium, The Superdome, located in the middle of downtown. Catch a New Orleans Saints game with prices and group discounts to fit anyone’s budget - perfect for a weekend vacation. If you’re a fan of college ball, book a winter vacation in January during the Sugar Bowl tournament, the second oldest bowl game in the country. Want to get out of the city? Rent a waterfront lakehouse in Slidell, nearby Louisiana State University, and watch the LSU Tigers tackle their opponents. Or forget about sports and stay in a rustic Louisiana cabin rental, where there is plenty of space for you and your group to enjoy fishing, crabbing and shrimping in the great outdoors.
In April, New Orleans hosts the Annual Zurich Classic – PGA Tour, where top-notch players golf for four days at the gorgeous 250 acre Tournament Players Club golf course, located across the Mississippi. If you’re up for it, book your business vacation rental near one of the many golf courses in Louisiana, and practice your swing with co-workers against a backdrop of Cajun and Creole culture. And of course, the Warehouse and Arts District should be on your itinerary. Here you’ll find more educational museums, such as the National World War II Museum and the New Orleans Contemporary Art Center. Movie buffs (and conspiracy theorists) will recognize sites from the movie, JFK.
Guided tours are a perfect way to pick up some knowledge while having a good time, and in the Pelican State, there’s a tour for everyone. Visit the Southern plantations and antebellum homes in Louisiana. Take the kids, and they’ll never know they’re getting a Civil War history lesson at the same time. Get bogged down in one of Louisiana’s swamp tours where you’ll encounter creatures you won’t find in your own backyard: alligators, wild boars, nutria, bald eagles and black bears. And if your tastes tend toward the macabre, you won’t want to miss the City of the Dead where you may observe the above-ground crypts of St. Louis Cemetery. What’s your tour du jour?
