Louisiana
The Essential
Proud of its European heritage, Louisiana is one of those astounding blends of Old and New Worlds in which so America excels! The state is awash with picture postcard snapshots from the flower-decked balconies of the French Quarter in New Orleans and the alligators crawling around in the bayous to the old plantations lined in majestic oak trees and the steam paddle boats cruising langorously down the Mississippi. An authentic melting pot of cultural and linguistic influences, Louisiana never disappoints!
Hire yourself a local guide and make a foray into Cajun Country to explore the almost haunting bayous landscape. Pay a visit to Vermilionville, a reconstituted Acadian village for a better insight into this endearing culture. br/>Save time to explore Plantation Alley dotted with extravagant plantation mansions, before going dancing in New Orleans to the raunchy beat of the jazz bands blasting out on every street corner.
