Introduction

Louisiana is an exotic mix of nations and cultures and has one of the most colourful histories of any US state. World-class music and fabulous food - a mix of French, African, Spanish and Acadian combine to create a sensory overload.

With more than 600 fairs and festivals a year there's always something to do and for those that love the great outdoors, there's the coastal marshes, bayous and rolling to discover.
