8 Reasons Living In Louisiana Spoils You For Life
Louisiana is the best, right? The Bayou State has a way of getting into your soul and spoiling you for life. From the amazing community to the abundance of history around us, we are pretty lucky to live in such an amazing state. Here are eight reasons why living in Louisiana spoils you for life.
1. We take southern hospitality to new levels.
We say ma’am and sir, we hold doors open for strangers, and we’ll chat with you forever about the weather, what high school you went to, and where to get the best gumbo. We were just raised that way!
2. Our food is unparalleled.
From Cajun Country up to the rolling hills of northern Louisiana, each region has mouthwateringly good food that people travel from all over to try. From meat pies to muffulettas, no other state can cook like Louisiana.
3. The scenery is amazing.
We may not have the mountain vistas that other states do, but watching the sunset over a bayou while an egret soars just above the waterline is perhaps one of the most beautiful sights in the world.
4. We support creative types.
Louisiana is an artist’s paradise. Whether you’re a musician, painter, chef, or writer, artists of all backgrounds have come to Louisiana to be inspired and create their next masterpiece.
5. Our music.
From the funky beats of a swamp pop band to the toe-tapping rhythms of a second line, Louisiana and music have a long history together.
6. We’re surrounded by history.
Sites like Poverty Point up in northeastern Louisiana remind us that we have an incredible history all around us. From the incredible architecture of the French Quarter to the grandiose plantations in plantation country, Louisiana certainly is a history lover's dream.
7. Our state parks are pretty incredible too.
Louisiana has 21 state parks, each one prettier than the last. From beautiful hiking trails to lakes stocked with fish, you can do it all at our state parks.
8. Football is a way of life down here.
Sure, college and NFL games are great, but we also support high school games with the same enthusiasm as college and pro. And no other state can tailgate like a Louisiana can!
