It wasn’t until 1915 that English was made the official language of Louisiana, a strong testament to the incredibly rich and diverse culture of the state. 18th-century French, Spanish, Native American, and African cultures give Louisiana a unique multicultural and multilingual heritage.
The French Quarter is a must-see for all visitors. It’s one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city and has something for everyone. The nightlife seekers will be in paradise on Bourbon Street, especially during Mardi Gras! Travel to Royal Street and seek elegant refuge from the hustle and bustle.
Louisiana’s aquariums and zoos are sure to delight vacationers of all ages. Near New Orleans, the Audubon Zoo, Aquarium of the Americas, and the Audubon Insectarium showcase incredible peeks into diverse wildlife.
In Louisiana, the locals like to say that they don’t “just eat” they “dine with gusto.” Quintessential flavors you can only find within the state lines await you at countless fine eating establishments, diners, and everything in between. Some of the best seafood in the world is found here!
A vacation to Louisiana gives you all of the culture and adventure you would find internationally, without the passport.
