Top Louisiana Tours, Tickets & Activities
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. But any season finds Louisiana visitors enjoying the unique Cajun and Creole cultures, marveling at alligator-infested bayous, dining in gorgeous 18th century plantation homes, and learning the sad history of slavery.
