Things to do in Louisiana

Guest Author - Charisse Van Horn

After the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, there may be better time to plan a trip to Louisiana then now. Not only does New Orleans have plenty to offer to tourists and locals alike, but also visiting Louisiana helps put money back into the economy and may be one of the best proactive steps that you can take to show your support to this living piece of American history.

Rich with the sounds of jazz, zydeco, and Cajun music Louisiana offers plenty to those who want to experience some of the finest music America has to offer. The nightlife is active and it has been said that the soulful melodies are Louisiana's native language. Not only is Louisiana's air permeated with music, but you'll also find lots of casinos, dance clubs, and fine eateries to keep you occupied until the sun rises on Bourbon Street. There's no doubt that music is the heart and soul of Louisiana, and you'll find plenty of music festivals to enjoy when you visit. From the Baton Rouge Blues festival which is free to the public and takes place in April, to the Voodoo Music Experience at the end of October there are always plenty of musical acts to tantalize your ears no matter when you visit.

Though Louisiana is teeming with nightlife, it's also a great place to bring your family for a vacation as well. Some of the most popular family oriented destinations in Louisiana include taking a carriage ride through the French Quarter where children can get a first hand view of the historic district, or enjoy a wonderful tour of the Mississippi on steamboat. Children will also enjoy taking a tour of Oak Alley Plantation, where they will view authentic historic costumes and the splendor of both the mansion as well as the grounds. Families will also enjoy visiting the Louisiana Children's Museum located in the French Quarter. The museum is open between Tuesdays and Saturdays, and open between 12:00 P.M and 4:30 P.M. on Sundays. There are over one hundred interactive exhibits and the museum recommends that you plan at least two hours per visit. One of the best features regarding the Louisiana Children's Museum is the fact that if you hold on to your admission receipt, you can come and go throughout the day without paying another admission fee. If you'd like to discover more things that you can do when visiting Louisiana, I recommend that you order online or download the free official Louisiana travel guide.
