I am from Louisiana, down in the south, and I absolutely LOVED the movie. I felt like it really captured the culture of New Orleans and the surrounding areas. The Mardi Gras part was extremely accurate as well, and I really appreciated how Disney really got their facts straight with this one. The Shreveport joke was absolutely amazing, too! I just wanted to know what people who weren’t from Louisiana thought of it and I wanted to know if they understood the little jokes that my friends and I laughed out loud for.
I loved it! I liked the music and was interested in how it looked like the original Disney films. I’m not from Louisiana, but I did like the cultural exposition in the story. I probably wouldn’t have understood the jokes, but it was a funny movie! The ending made me want to cry because it was so sweet and happy.

Could you be more specific in your questions? I live in Louisiana, but need more info on what you are asking. Thanks.
I’ve read a lot and did a some research, now I would like to know the opinion of the citizens. The Grants for Grads Program is established in recognition that many Louisiana’s residents relocate from Louisiana upon completion of their college careers due to a perceived lack of economic opportunity. Homeownership reflects a commitment to remain in Louisiana and continue the tradition and culture of the state.
The grants for grads awards any Louisiana resident who has received an associate, baccalaureate, masters/postgraduate degree on or after January 1, 2008 and was:
As a LA resident I have been very aware of the outflow of LA college graduates. I have never heard of this program, but I see the need for it and I will definitely look into it.
Whether you like to party or you love history, you will find an attraction you like in Louisiana. One destination you can’t pass up when you go to Louisiana is New Orleans, especially if you are traveling during Mardi Gras when you can experience the excitement of the parades, parties and live music. New Orleans has a variety of events that are worth exploring. In Lafayette you can visit different swamps and take a unique swamp tour or have a unique fishing experience. The capital at Baton Rouge offers a variety of museums and historical sights. For gaming options there is Shreveport and Bossier City in the northern part of Louisiana. No matter where you go in Louisiana you are bound to find a historic plantation and most of them have public tours available to travelers.
New Orleans is most known for their blend of history and culture that you can experience through a variety of events, restaurants and cultural events. There is plenty to do in New Orleans including visiting a live theater, shopping in a unique gallery or boutiques and visiting one of the many festivals. Thousands of visitors come to New Orleans each year for Mardi Gras which has large parades, street parties and costume balls. You can’t visit New Orleans without touring the French Quarter which is the best cultural center of the city. There are a number of live music clubs with everything from jazz to country available in this part of the city along with a variety of restaurants from Cajun, Creole, Southern and French cuisine. You can even opt to take a guided tour that will show you the area’s culture and historic sites.
The capital of Louisiana is Baton Rouge. This is a very culturally diverse city to visit that is very popular with tourists. A number of festivals can always be found along the riverfront entertainment district along with the cities port which is one of the largest in the United States. You can choose to tour the Louisiana State University and Southern University. The area around the city has several plantations that you can visit and tour with the two most popular being the Magnolia Mound Plantation and Mt. Hope Plantation.
Staying in Louisiana almost always means finding a bed and breakfast to stay at. The Louisiana Bed and Breakfast Association at http://www.louisianabandb.com is an excellent way to look at all your options and find the best one for your traveling needs. One new option is the L’Auberge du Lac which is a 750 room casino and gaming resort. A new Hilton was built at the former Capitol House Hotel in Baton Rouge in 2006 which now has a fitness center, pool and salons. Some of the rooms at this hotel come with beautiful views of the Mississippi River.
Cajun music is just one of many music forms originating from Louisiana.

Another step back in time, a nostalgic memory. “Young” Wayne Toups just starting out at a club called “Cowgirls” located in Scott, Louisiana. Although the club is no more, my transcribed VHS of Wayne Toups music (back in the mid 1980’s) still goes on. Of interest to all that love music, to enjoy and for some to reminisce. Keep in mind we did not have the technology that is current of today’s times.

It’s my native home and I absolutely love it. I live in Texas now, which is the ONLY state greater than Louisiana. However, I miss the accessibility to the best shrimp, as well as crawfish and gumbo. The people are still friendly, the culture is unique from any other in the world, the beauty of the swamps is mystic and intriguing, and I even think New Orleans is a great city (but a horribly abused one at that, even long before Katrina.)
What do you think? Thanks!
i like Louisiana but if i never see Texas again it will be too soon
