Louisiana Hotels

The southern state of Louisiana has some of the most vibrant cultures in the country. The rich history and traditions are deeply engrained in society and create a unique atmosphere that can't be rivaled. A trip to Louisiana means crawfishing in the bayou, partying in New Orleans and enjoying some down-home Creole cooking. Whether you are a party animal or are looking to explore the state's history, you'll have a memorable vacation in Louisiana.

Perhaps one of the most popular vacation spots in Louisiana is New Orleans. This eclectic city is known for its yearly Mardi Gras celebrations, which fill the city streets with live music and dynamic parties. Although Mardi Gras celebrations are held throughout the world, you won't find a place that celebrates quite like New Orleans. Bring your party beads, dress in costume and take part in the festivities. Mardi Gras, also known as Fat Tuesday, is always held the day before Ash Wednesday. Make hotel reservations well in advance, as most New Orleans hotels will be booked solid as the festivities near.

There is much more to Louisiana than Mardi Gras, however. The state's rich history makes it a wonderful vacation destination if you delight in exploring Civil War battlefields, early plantations and the pre-industrial culture of the 19th century. Kent Plantation House is the oldest standing structure in Central Louisiana, dating back to 1800. Tours of the Kent House are available, which detail life on a plantation in the early 1800s. The Rural Life Museum and Windrush Gardens is an outdoor museum that depicts the various cultures of the 19th century through 20 buildings, which are available for viewing.
