Louisiana is one of our favorite states. We go back again and again and are always surprised by how much we missed in the last times we visited. The state always has new things to offer and excite us. Louisiana is one of those places we visit that always feels like a non-stop party while still managing to feel warm and comfortably like home. Here is The Constant Rambler list of 5 Must-see Attractions in Louisiana.
Pear River Eco Tours in Slidell, LA takes you buzzing through the bayou as you search the waters of the Honey Island Swamp for wildlife. It’s a must-do adventure for any animal lover, or for any first timer in the swampy South.
Tucked away in the little town of Darrow, Louisiana is a gem of a place called The Houmas House Plantation and Gardens. Known as the “crown jewel of Louisiana’s river road” it is a property that is steeped in historical significance, and has ben restored to reflect the splendor that Southern Plantation homes have long been associated with. Taking a tour of the Houmas House Plantation while walking through this fairy tale setting with my dog at my side and an ice cold drink in my hand was absolutely blissful.
Louisiana cuisine, it’s not just gumbo and Po’ boys. French, Italian, German, African-American and American-Indian influences run deep in the food scene of the state. Well-seasoned grub, spiced with a lil’ bayou heat and a pinch of “ain’t nobody’s cooking better than mine” attitude makes Louisiana a go-to state for some of the best food I have ever put in my mouth.
New Orleans is one of those cities that sticks to my ribs like a good gumbo. We ramble through this city a few times a year and it never disappoints. On our last visit we stayed at the Loews Hotel in downtown NOLA. Why? Because Loews Loves Pets and everyone knows that we do too!
