I really liked Louisiana, during that whole week I saw Shreveport, Monroe, St. Francisville, Baton Rouge, Vacherie, New Orleans and Lafayette.

We went to see the Oak Alley Plantation and the Confederate museum in New Orleans. Unfortunately I didn't stay in NO long enough to see anything outside the first few blocks of Bourbon street. But so far the people were really nice, and for some reason, I liked the swamps.

In Lafayette I saw two men speaking Cajun french to each other at a gas station as well, it was kind of new to hear French.

Very cool. You'd fit right in. Glad to hear you had a wonderful time.
I wish you could have seen it decades ago.

Thank you for the reponses, when I barely got out there I was unsure if I'd like it, but I really do! I also saw parts of Mississippi, but I only saw Vicksburg (the July 4th fireworks show and the Battlefield), Natchez and Woodville, which isn't very much of that state.

My favorite part had to be the Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie, that was just too cool. Second favorite had to be the museum.

If someone is an avid hunter, fisherman, naturist, or photographer I always try to recommend they take a swamp tour.
