Louisiana travelers choose from 45 Best Western hotels.
Never failing to impress, Louisiana is a festive state with much to explore this winter. Travel to balmy New Orleans for the famed Garden District, French Market, and of course, the French Quarter and Bourbon Street – a music, food, and history experience. From the electric hum of Crescent City to winter recreation in the many Louisiana state parks, the Bayou State never runs dry of winter fun.
Experience the enchantment of Plantation Country in St. Francisville and Lake Charles, but don’t leave without treating yourself to world-famous Creole cuisine. Here in Cajun Country, warm up with steamy gumbo, fresh and filling jambalaya, or a crunchy shrimp po’ boy.
Take in a winter Tigers game at Louisiana State University in Baton Rogue, or head to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome – home of Super Bowl Champions and NFL's own Saints. Then get to know authentic Louisiana with a winter festival. Visit central Louisiana and check out Natchitoches' own Christmas Festival of Lights in the Natchitoches Historic District.
Winter is a particularly ideal time for a road trip in Louisiana. Pack up the wagon and hit the road – be sure to check out the Historic Central Louisiana Tour, the Top of the Boot Tour, or the always fun New Orleans Weekend Tour.
