Welcome to Louisiana

Historically rich, culturally vibrant Louisiana is defined by its location where the great Mississippi-Missouri river system drains into the Gulf of Mexico. The architecture, art, music, food, and folkways show deep influences from the people who shaped the land: Native Americans, French, Spanish, Africans, Germans, Italians, and more. Thousands of partiers gather in New Orleans’ French Quarter for the annual spring Mardi Gras, America’s oldest Carnival celebration.
