Storming North America : Louisiana

Louisiana, do you like it?

The Pelican State is the 31st state of the United States. Its capital is Baton Rouge.

New Orleans

You might think New Orleans is a state. Think again, this is the largest city in Louisiana. This is where you will find the French beating heart. City of music in all genres with a very particular architecture, it is atypical compared to the customs so agreed even ordinary so puritanical in the USA.

The old square or French quarter embodies the essence of New Orleans. Stroll through the historic district and experience this permanent musical atmosphere. The district was spared by Hurricane Katrina.

The Audubon Aquarium of the Americas is home to species from all over the Americas. Do not forget the Audubon Park too, popular urban oasis.

Oak Alley is the perfect image of a pre-Civil War home.

Do you like jazz? So there is no better place than the Preservation Hall to listen to it.

Lafayette

Plan a car because the tourist sites are relatively eccentric.

First you have to taste Cajun cuisine in one of the many restaurants in the city.

The Acadian village is a recreation of life in Acadie in the middle of the 19th century.

The Vermilionville Living History and Folk Life Park is dedicated to folklore and illustrates Acadian, Native American and Creole cultures in the late 18th and early 19th century.

Baton Rouge

The name of the city comes from the pegs coated with the blood of animals that marked the entrance to an Indian game reserve.
The former Louisiana Capitol is similar to a medieval castle with a neo-gothic style and is home to the museum of political history.

It is a scenic 290-kilometer route through the marshes along the Louisiana coastline. You will find on the way alligators, beaches, crabs, fishermen … In short, a wild state!

Good to know !

In Louisiana, a tax refund program has been put in place. You can therefore get these taxes refunded from member merchants. You will receive the amount in cash upon presentation of receipts and your passport. More information here.

For Christmas we will go to Wisconsin and Illinois.
