Louisiana has a rich culture that features a mix between Creole and Cajun. Cities like New Orleans hold their heritage in Creolean culture and music very dearly, making this the ultimate go-to state for Dixieland jazz and the famous Mardi Gras. It's also where Creole cuisine was born.

Head to cities like Baton Rouge and Lafayette for Cajun country charm,  where elegant plantation homesteads provide a glimpse into the exotic past. Located at the mouth of the Mississippi River, the 18th US state is an excellent destination for outdoor fun, with varied landscapes and warm weather year-round.
