Guides to Louisiana

Cajun country: bayous and gumbo, swamps and Zydeco, crayfish (pronounced CRAW-fish) and the Cajun two-step. That's not all there is to Louisiana, of course, but it's a colorful start. It's hot in Louisiana, and that's not exclusive to the weather, although the weather is worth mentioning. It's sticky and it's clammy and it's humid; by nine a.m. your clothes are clinging to you like the Spanish Moss that hangs from the trees in Audubon Park. The other "hot" items on Louisiana's menu are the music (le jazz hot) and the food. Ahhhh...the food. You'll find generous helpings of both in New Orleans, the state's most famous city.

Sitting on the muddy banks of the Mississippi, New Orleans is home to jazz players the world over; it's the birthplace of Dixieland; and its own unique brand of musical genres borrow from blues, jazz, traditional Cajun folk music, everything else in Louisiana, the music scene always offers lagniappe (a little "something extra"). Scenes like these help to bring in seven million visitors a year to the state, many of them to Mardi Gras, when New Orleans-if you didn't think so already-pulls out all the stops for 12 days of merriment and madness. Line up behind us; the fun starts here.
