Louisiana Culinary Trails – Delta Delights

Rich farmland, recreational waterways and scenic highways dominate Northeast Louisiana. This side of the Delta still lays claim to unspoiled and undeveloped backroads that take modern day explorers back in time. It’s all about Southern tradition in this neck of the Great Southern Pine Forest, where many of the go-to eateries have been in continuous operation for at least a half-century. Grab a map and head off to discover one of the nearby rural treasures within an hour’s drive of Monroe/West Monroe. Slow down, relax, and enjoy a perfectly seasoned Southern dish — from frog legs to fricassée — prepared from a distinctive recipe passed down for generations.

Louisiana: An Outdoor Experience

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.

What’s the Southeastern Louisiana culture like?

Around Hammond area. Sorry I had to post here, I got smarta** remarks in the general post.

I went there. It was pretty fun. Lots of nice and rude people. The professors are good. It was actually pretty easy for a lot of my classes. The dorms are pretty new and some of the buildings are pretty new and nice. Of course, since this is the country, most of these students smoke weed a lot for fun, which I did not enjoy so I left. I prefer the big cities and clubbing. You often see crazy driving and people very high. The crime rate on campus was very high. It is just a very small rural area.
