Join us for a trip around this exotic state, where the Caribbean meets the Old South;where the Red River meets the mighty Mississippi;where French and Spanish met at No Man's Land in the early 1700's. It's a steaming land of cotton and sugar cane, a heady brew of music and cuisine to delight and amaze the whole world. It's cypress trees and Spanish moss and poetry.
Where would we be without Louisiana? No Cajuns, Zydeco, Mardi Gras, pirogues or fais-do-do's? No Uncle Earl, Huey Long, Leadbelly, Jelly Roll or Professor Longhair? No "Hadacol Boogie", "You Are My Sunshine" or "Goodnight Irene"? No Satchmo or Marie Laveau? Where else do you find the French Quarter, the Louisiana Hayride, and the birth of jazz? Louisiana, the starting point for Elvis and the end for Bonnie and Clyde.
Visit the Oldest European town in the entire Louisiana Purchase (Hint: it's Natchitoches, not New Orleans). Oh, we'll visit the Big Easy, too, where Carnival thrives all year long! And that's just skimming the surface. Louisiana, is a world unto itself.
Let it haunt you. You won't want to leave. As the song says, "Goodbye Bayou, see you in my dreams."
