Never failing to impress, Louisiana is a festive state with much to explore this spring. Travel to New Orleans for the famed French Quarter, Bourbon Street, and of course, the annual Mardi Gras celebration – a music, food, and history experience. From the electric hum of Crescent City to the many Louisiana state parks, the Bayou State never runs dry of spring adventure.
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, indulge in steamy gumbo, fresh and filling jambalaya, or a crunchy shrimp po’ boy.
Take in a spring Tigers game at Louisiana State University in Baton Rogue, or get to know authentic Louisiana with a spring festival. Check out the Ponchatoula Strawberry Fest near Hammond, the Louisiana Forest Festival in Winnfield, or the Festival International de Louisiane in downtown Lafayette.
