Whould you move to Louisiana?

We are a military family about to exit the military due to an injury. SO now we have to figure out where to move. My husband has family in Louisiana & want us to move there. I am a northern girl, so I am a bit hesitant. What are you thoughts of Louisiana? Schools, education, culture, family life. everything things that go into where you live & what helps you grow into the person you are?

I have a child that is going into the 5th grade that is in all the gifted programs & a infant. I just don’t want to make the wrong choice.
