Music & the Great Outdoors
Music is the lifeblood and heartbeat of Louisiana, and it can be heard throughout the cities and towns, in cafés, bars, clubs and restaurants. Louisiana was the birthplace of Jazz, as well as many other distinct musical styles, including Cajun and Gospel. The legacy of native Louisianans includes world famous entertainers such as Louis Armstrong, Harry Connick, Jr., Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, Britney Spears, and Wynton Marsalis. Your ears will be pleasantly surprised by the diversity of music on offer within the state.
For those that enjoy the great outdoors, Louisiana offers coastal marshes, bayous and rolling hills and lakes in the north and south. It’s an ideal destination for activity holidays including fishing, cycling, golf, hiking and kayaking. Take a trip into the swampy mysterious bayous draped with Spanish moss and see if you can spot an alligator or two!
