Named to honor King Louis IV of France,
Louisiana is one of the most beautiful and
historic states in the South. Known for the
historic charm and Mardi Gras atmosphere
of New Orleans, bayous and wetlands, the
days of Governor Huey Long in Baton Rouge
and the magnificent plantation homes that
line the Mississippi, Louisiana holds a little
something for explorers of every taste.

The Pelican State is rich in history, from its
Cajun and Creole influences, and Civil War
devastation to Andrew Jackson's famed
victory at the Battle of New Orleans and the
legends of famed "privateer" Jean Lafitte.
Louisiana State Capitol
The magnificent capitol in
Baton Rouge was the dream
of Senator Huey P. Long, who
was assassinated inside.
