Louisiana is a south-eastern state on the Gulf of Mexico with many quality villas, a melting pot of French, African and American cultures. Famous for its music and food, Louisiana is the birthplace of jazz, the home of Cajun and zydeco music and a stage for American blues, country and rock `n` roll.
Food is legendary, no matter which part of the state you visit. The cuisine comprises Cajun and Creole delicacies often prepared with the best in seafood - shrimp, oysters, crawfish and even alligator - all caught off or in the shores of Sportsman's Paradise.
Louisiana also has more festivals than any other state, including The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival or Festival International de Louisiana in Lafayette and the Red River Revel in Shreveport. Mardi Gras is celebrated throughout the state in late winter to early spring, so there is always a reason to dance and eat in Louisiana!
