How Louisiana Quietly Became The Unofficial Capital Of These 8 Things
Louisiana is a fascinating filled with so much culture, nature, and culinary excellence, it can be easy to take it all for granted. It’s time to brag about our state and show everyone what we are known for!
You won’t find southern hospitality anywhere else like Louisiana. We smile at strangers on the sidewalk, hold doors open for others, sir/ma’am is often heard, and when we ask "how’s ya mama and dem?" we want to know!
2. Swamps and bayous
With hundreds of bayous running through Louisiana, chances are you grew up near one if you were raised in Louisiana.
With over 400 festivals each year, it’s no wonder Louisiana is known as the "Festival Capital of the World." From tamales to pirates, we’ll throw a festival for just about anything.
4. Fresh seafood
Available pretty much year-round, we’re lucky we have access to fresh seafood caught straight from the Gulf!
Avery Island is home to one of America’s most beloved hot sauces: Tabasco. Red beans and rice just isn’t the same without a dash of Tabasco!
Jazz, zydeco, swamp pop, country music, blues, gospel, and hip-hop… Louisiana has played an important roll in the development of these music genres.
It’s no secret that our food is simply the best. People come from all over the world to taste it, and chefs dream of studying the art of Cajun and Creole cuisine.
Louisiana loves football. High school games can get just as heated as college rivalries, and we are fierce fans. Go experience a Saturday afternoon tailgate party if you don't believe me.
