www.coreybarksdale.com New Orleans (pronounced /nuːˈɔliənz, nuːˈɔlənz/ locally and often pronounced /nuːɔrˈliːnz/ in most other US dialects French: La Nouvelle-Orléans is a major United States port city and the largest city in Louisiana. New Orleans is the center of the Greater New Orleans metropolitan area, the largest metro area in the state. New Orleans is located in southeastern Louisiana, straddling the Mississippi River. It is coextensive with Orleans Parish, meaning that the boundaries of the city and the parish are the same. It is bounded by the parishes of St. Tammany (north), St. Bernard (east), Plaquemines (south), and Jefferson (south and west). Lake Pontchartrain, part of which is included in the city limits, lies to the north, and Lake Borgne lies to the east. The city is named after Philippe II, Duc d’Orléans, Regent of France, and is one of the oldest cities in the United States. It is well known for its multicultural and multilingual heritage, cuisine, architecture, music (particularly as the birthplace of jazz), and its annual Mardi Gras and other celebrations and festivals. The city is often referred to as the “most unique” city in America La Nouvelle-Orléans (New Orleans) was founded May 7, 1718, by the French Mississippi Company, under the direction of Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville on land inhabited by the Chitimacha.

Louisiana and Cajun?

I just want to say, when you live in new orleans and anywhere else for that matter in louisiana, most people do not listen to banjo cajun music.

I cant tell you how much it aggravates me to watch movies based in louisiana and all you hear is banjos and those wash board things with the spoons. and not everyone talks in a cajun or countyry accent!

DOES ANYONE ELSE AGREE WITH ME!
Im happy to see that im not the only one with this opinion! :)
Oh and most people do not live in a swamp and drive Volkswagen big. And ive lived her for 30 years and have never met anyone with an air boat!
Wow. i dont know what happened before. i meant to say volkswagen Things (you know the jeep looking thing with no roof)

Yes, it IS aggravating. I’m a New Orleans tourguide and I would always tell my groups that New Orleans is NOT Cajun, and has NO Cajuns living there. Yes, you can find Cajun food and music in New Orleans, but I tell them that to see the REAL Cajun culture, they have to go to south central La. What gets my goat is that people from everywhere else think that all Southerners should speak with a Southern accent, and New Orleans people most certainly DO NOT have a Southern accent. I tell people the Cajun accent is very distinct and is easily differentiated from a Southern accent. I don’t speak with a Southern accent, because I spent my childhood in the Midwest, though I was born in Jefferson Parish and lived in Luling till age 6.

K-Rose : Louisiana Woman , Mississippi Man

K Rose
Louisiana Woman , Mississippi Man by Conway Twitty & Loretta Lynn

Lyrics:
Hey Louisiana woman Mississippi man we get together every time we can
The Mississippi River can keep us apart
There’s too much love in the Mississippi heart too much love in this Louisiana heart

See the alligators all a waitin’ nearby soon or later they know I’m gonna try
When she waves from the bank don’t you know I know
It’s goodbye fishin’ line see you while ago
With a Louisiana woman waitin’ on the other side
The Mississippi River don’t look so wide
Louisiana woman Mississippi man…

Well I thought I’d been loved but I never had
Till I was wrapped In the arms of a Mississippi man
When he holds me close it feels almost like another hurricane just ripped the coast
If he can’t come to me I’m gonna go to him
That Mississippi River Lord I’m gonna swim
Hey Louisiana woman Mississippi man…

Well Mississippi River Lord it’s one mile wide and I gotta get me to the other side
Mississippi man I’m losin’ my mind gotta have your loving one more time
I’m gonna jump in the river and here go too bad alligatior you swim too slow
Hey Louisiana woman Mississippi man…
There’s too much love in the Mississippi heart too much love in this Louisiana heart
There’s too much love in the Mississippi heart too much love in this Louisiana heart

Four Best Vacation Places For Honeymooners

A honeymoon is an unforgettable holiday that every newly married couple embarks on, before establishing their marital life. Although a honeymoon is a traditional idea, nevertheless it carries romantic sentiment and in some cases, honeymoon holiday packages are also gifted to the newly weds by parents and relatives.

Choosing a honeymoon vacation destination can be a little confusing, but there are travel agencies out there who offer wonderful honeymoon packages. There are a number of exotic places that a couple can visit and travel agents are the best informed to help with the final choice. The US alone has so many exquisite places to visit.

Hawaii has been ranked as the number one honeymoon destination for decades now. Sun-kissed beaches, azure water, hidden coves, world class accommodation and the delicious cuisine make Hawaii special. Popular and incredibly beautiful, Hawaii is a lovers paradise. For those who are sports enthusiasts, Hawaii is ‘the’ place to be in to enjoy amazing water sports. Hawaii is one of nature’s perfect creations and the weather is simply perfect all year round.

The places worth visiting in Hawaii are Waikiki and Maui islands that display the island’s culture and natural beauty. There are many luxurious accommodation options in Hawaii that offer wonderful packages and benefits like Halekulani, Hyatt Regency and the Kahala Mandarin Oriental Hawaii, to name a few.

Niagara Falls is another perfect destination for honeymooners. Niagara Falls is both, beautiful and economic and its panoramic view can be viewed from the US as well as Canada. The main attractions at Niagara Falls include the ‘Maid of the Mist’ boat cruise that screens an enjoyable feature film from IMAX about the history of Niagara Falls. The other must-see attractions are:

- The Guinness Book of World Records Museum
- Mystery Maze
- The Haunted House
- The House of Frankenstein

You should not forget to visit New York while you are at Niagara Falls. You will get a lot of room to splurge on shopping, restaurants and some of the world’s best theaters.

Florida may be ranked third, but no other destination can compete with Florida in terms of the warm festive ambience that it extends to its guests. Florida offers something for everyone and its itinerary of must see places is so long that tourists are often confused about where to go and what to leave out. Starting from Walt Disney World to the wonders of Orlando, Palm Beach, Miami, Daytona and the Florida Keys, the place is amazing. Along with sightseeing, Florida also offers all its guests lavish accommodation and the most exhilarating assortment of water sports.

Las Vegas is at number four not because it lacks something, but because it has a bit more than a couple on a honeymoon can expect. Las Vegas is also famous as the ‘city that never sleeps’ and is known for gambling and quick weddings, besides sightseeing. This city offers every couple on a honeymoon an experience of a lifetime.

Apart from these places, other hot honeymoon destinations in the US are California (Wine Country), Pennsylvania (Poconos), Louisiana (New Orleans) and almost all the southern states on the Gulf Coast.

Good Morning NOLA!  Brrr!  What is going on out there?  The little cool front we were promised after all that rain on Saturday is still hanging on.  Yesterday was downright chilly out in the streets.  I was working on Canal and Decatur for most of the day on the movie Medallion.  The wind was slicing through us and my feather wig was dancing all day. Todays high is suppose be sixty-six but we never made it to our high yesterday.  Today will be partly cloudy and it is looking like we have more rain in the forecast for Mardi Gras day and Wednesday. Get the rain gear out and keep the umbrella handy.  If it is anything like Saurday I highly recommend rain boots or shoes of some kind. The rain will move out for the rest of the week and we should have a nice mid to end of the week.  Saturday the twelfth looks awesome so come out to the Quarter for my book signing at the 1850′s House Store on the Square. Have fun and be safe out there.  I’ll see you in NOLA!
