Culture in Louisiana
When you make a list of all the unique things Louisiana has to offer, you will notice the influences of their French, Spanish and African ancestry. The past is well-preserved in architecture, music, food and lifestyle – including the amazing festivals – as well as museums of history and fine art.
Louisiana’s motto is "Laissez les bons temps rouler," meaning "Let the good times roll". You’ll get lost in the traditions passed down through generations. Visit during Mardi Gras when costumed riders parade the streets and magnificent balls are thrown from New Orleans and Baton Rouge to Houma, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Shreveport and beyond – it’s a statewide celebration! Peek back across the centuries as you walk under lavish ironwork and through lush courtyard gardens in a French Quarter hotel. You’ll be absorbed in history with a tour of a plantation home where the daily activities of the past are recreated, then let nature's mysteries inspire and awe you via a boat tour through a cypress studded bayou.
In Louisiana history and lore don't just live in books on a shelf; they're reflected in their everyday lives too.
