No other state in the USA has as colorful a history as Louisiana.
It has been governed under 10 different Flags and it became an independent republic for six weeks before joining immediately joining the Confederacy.
In 1803 President Jefferson knew the importance of trade and this state’s economy, so he charted a deal with Napoleon.
Due to its fertile lands and solid trading opportunities, Louisiana soon became the wealthiest state in the US and promoted the growth of cotton and sugar.
Agriculture suffered badly during the civil war, but with sulfur found in 1869 and oil in 1901, the state became a hub in the oil and natural gas industry and it stays that way even today.
The main content at Audubon State Historic Site is Oakley House complete with boarding facilities for you to stay.
After finalizing its permanent boundary, Fort Jesup State Historic Site was built in 1822 and remained a military post for almost 25 years. It served the purpose of defense for the American Military forces during war with the Mexicans.
Plaquemine Lock State Historic Site was built to control the wild waters of Mississippi River. They were a bane for the traders and as it used to flood the low lying areas. To control them, the Lock was fabricated and when completed in 1909, it was the only Lock in the world to lift water up to 51 feet.
Today it has become an irresistible site for the tourists.
America’s large American Rose Center Gardens have huge pines and different roses for smelling.
Louisiana’s largest water theme park, Blue Bayou Water Park has watery games and amenities for you to indulge in.

Los Adaes used to be the focal point of native Americans, the Spanish and also the French. They used to stay and trade with each other at various points.
This 14 acres site was built by the Spanish in the 1700s and it provides full historical and archaeological knowledge of the time.
How about going aboard the Paddle Wheeler Creole Queen for a cruise trip and then enjoy great music, dinner, jazz and atmosphere.
Bayou Segnette State Park is full of enjoyable pastimes based around water activities and you can watch wildlife. Keep your eyes open for different types of birds and animals while you go about having your fun.
Fontainebleau State Park derives its name from a Paris forest by the same name. It was created by a sugar producer in 1829 and you can still see the brick ruins of sugar mills today.
You can also see the lavish lifestyle that he used to live in. This area is constructed around Lake Pontchartrain.

New Year’s Eve Kicks Off Regular Musical Line-up in Newly Reopened Carousel Bar and Lounge
Tuesday through Saturday night entertainment starts January 2012 at Hotel Monteleone
New Orleans, LA – With the New Year comes a brand new line-up of fresh musical entertainment in the famous, newly reopened Carousel Bar and Lounge in the Hotel Monteleone. The nightly entertainment kicks off on New Year’s Eve at 9 p.m. with Luther Kent, a New Orleans jazz favorite, and includes well-known artists and newcomers on the scene every Tuesday through Saturday night in January and beyond.
All the musical entertainment is free and open to the public. The 2012 line-up features a rotation of well-known New Orleans artists, Hotel favorites and special guests including Robin Barnes & Band, the Luther Kent Quartet, Lena Prima & Band, Eudora Evans & Band and the George French Jazz Quartet. Of special note, it honors the Hotel’s past as Lena Prima’s father, Louis Prima, played regularly at the Hotel back in the mid-1960s.
The Carousel Bar’s new lounge area reopened on December 30 after undergoing a renovation, which included adding expansive windows along Royal Street, enhanced décor and a secondary stationery bar. The current furnishings in the bar and lounge are temporary and will be replaced with new furniture to complete the renovation.
“Because the Carousel Bar is such an iconic part of the Hotel Monteleone, we were very careful during the renovation process to enrich without detracting from the atmosphere that patrons love,” said Andrea Thornton, director of sales and marketing for the Hotel Monteleone. “In addition to physical enhancements, we also focused on the Carousel Bar’s musical entertainment by welcoming industry veteran Marie Long to our team.”
Recently appointed director of entertainment for the Hotel Monteleone, Marie Long will be in charge of booking regular entertainment for the famous Carousel Bar and Lounge. With more than 36 years of experience in the music industry, Long has worked with national and local talents, including The DUKES of Dixieland, Chicago, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin and Tony Bennett, among others. Before forming Extravaganzas, Inc., her own music production company in 1992, Long worked with Pete Fountain Productions and Ray Bloch Productions.
“I’m ecstatic to be working with the Hotel to introduce a variety of entertainment into the newly renovated Carousel Lounge,” said Long. “We are featuring classic jazz artists and legendary R&B singers to brand new on-the-scene talent. We plan on celebrating music legends and creating new ones right here on the corner of Royal and Iberville Streets in the Carousel Bar and Lounge.”

What country music artist formed a band for Louisiana Hayride that consisted of Floyd Kramer, Faron Young and?
Teddy & Doyle Wilburn?
I’d really like some authentic cajun to listen to. Folk music is cool but if there’s some acoustic, punk or especially rock cajun artists that anyone knows of that would be AMAZING. I live right across the Mississippi from Louisiana and want to get to know it better…plus I’m falling in love with that culture.
