Louisiana Fly Drives and Road Trips

Dashed in between the sultry cosmopolitan landscape of New Orleans, the stately art deco motifs of Baton Rouge, and the quaint charm of Natchitoches, are stretches of Cypress forests and rice plains that can't help but grip the imagination. Taking advantage of our easily navigated Road Trip routes is the perfect way to ensure you take in all that Louisiana has to offer. Plus, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Alexandria and Shreveport have regional airports, which serve as convenient starting or stopping points for your tour.

Louisiana is so much more than New Orleans' Mardis Gras! Historically, it was a cultural melting-pot of its early French, Spanish, African, and Native American settlers. And everything about Louisiana today is the result of those uniquely diverse Cajun and Creole cultural influnces; its music, its architecture, its cuisine, its languages - even its attitude!

With all its diversity, which Louisiana Road Trip is the right one for you?

  • Explore Louisiana's African American roots by taking the African American Heritage Trail. This route will allow you to experience the many historical African American contributions to the State.

  • For Civil War enthusiasts, the Louisiana Civil War Trail is a must-do route. Visit all the State's battle sites and learn about the role Louisiana played in the American Civil War.

  • Louisiana's food is legendary, and eating out in the State is quite an experience! So for any Gastronomers out there, the various Louisiana Culinary Trails are an obvious Road Trip choice.

  • Any dedicated Twitchers should find Louisiana's Wetland Birding Trail the perfect Road Trip - with 4 Trails and over 250 points of interest, you may want to take your time experiencing this one!

  • Golfers will love the Audubon Golf Trail - 12 courses to play on amidst the incredible natural beauty that Louisiana has to offer; golfing heaven!

  • If you want a more varied Road Trip route, why not give our Loisiana State Itinerary a look? This should give you a great Louisiana sampler with something for everyone.
