13 Things That Make People From Small Town Louisiana The Best People
What small towns lack in mainstream attractions, they make up for in individuality and community. There’s just something to a slower paced, small town life that people seek out, and perhaps it’s due to the type of people that tend to live in these small towns. Here are some of our favorite reasons that makes people from small town Louisiana the best people ever.
