Deep in the American South, you’ll find one of our country’s most distinctive destinations: Louisiana. The state draws visitors from all over the world during its iconic Mardi Gras celebration, but there’s plenty to do and see here year-round. Football, Cajun food, boating, historic architecture, and live music are just a few reasons guests and locals alike sing the praises of Louisiana. From crawfish boils to modern art museums, you’ll be able to experience it all in style from the comfort of a Louisiana vacation rental.
You haven’t experienced Louisiana until you’ve been to New Orleans. From the French Quarter to Bywater, from Midcity down to the Garden District, every corner of the city is crowded with colorful, historic houses, wafts of live jazz music, and delicious fried treats. Catch a ride on one of the historic streetcars, which have been going since 1835---the oldest continuously operational lines in the world. Whether you’re here for Mardi Gras or not, you’ll find New Orleans’ charm irresistible.
Baton Rouge, the home of Louisiana State University, is the state’s capital, and boasts beautiful landmarks like the Old Louisiana State Capital (now a museum). Shreveport, in the northwest corner of the state, is bursting with riverboat casinos, boating, and bayou activities like Gators and Friends Adventure Park. Those in search of coastal activities can visit Louisiana’s gulf destinations, like Grand Isle and Holly Beach.
No matter where you’re headed in the state, make your reservations with confidence knowing you’ll rest easy in a Louisiana vacation rental.
