Louisiana Tourism & Visitor Guide
Welcome to Louisiana!
Louisiana offers attractions for travelers of all types, from party lovers to history buffs. New Orleans is a destination not to be missed, especially during Mardi Gras when the streets are filled with the wild excitement of parades, parties and live music. The historic sites of the French Quarter, the live jazz clubs and the Louisiana State Museum are other New Orleans attractions well worth exploring. South of Lafayette is Bayou Country, an area featuring several different swamp tours and excellent fishing. The city of Baton Rouge is the state capital, with magnolias and antebellum mansions in abundance. A significant location in the American Civil War, Central Louisiana houses an array of museums and historical sights pertaining to this period. Shreveport and Bossier City in the northern part of the state provide the region's best gaming options. Louisiana's countryside is laden with historic plantations, many of which are open for public tours.
