I was looking through the threads on the Louisiana boards because I'm very interested in traveling there some day. I was pleasantly surprised by how nice people on on the LA forums can be. Yes, now and then there is some bickering, and I probably haven't seen all of the nasty posts- but everyone generally seems so laid back. It's such a nice change from other forums where people go out of their way to keep others from coming to their beautiful state.

Of course. Like the "fact" that the Acadiana region has the best food in the state.

You are in for a treat if you plan to visit Louisiana.

First, let me say that the highway system is not quite up to par but the people are fantastic. The food is the best in the country, IMO.

The further south you go in the state the more you experience the culture. Folks from New Orleans have an accent similar to Brooklyn. It's amazing. The Cajun influence is heavy in the south and that is what makes the south so special in Louisiana.

Plus, the shopping experience is wonderful in NOLA (New Orleans, LA).

Take a riverboat tour of the river and see the grand old antebellum plantation homes.

I even enjoy driving through the bijous. I've run across some real characters out there. They are friendly people who have a very positive outlook on life. They are happy folks and the tourist cannot help but be happy, too.

If you want a real feel for Louisiana before visiting then I suggest you watch "Steel Magnolias." You get the true feel of the people, the food, the music and the sense of a real party in that movie. There is no other place in the US like Louisiana. It's special.

This is not a paid endorsement. I've never lived in Lousiana but I do live just next door.

Texicans are awesome folks for the most part. They make good neighbors. I really liked Austin, Erock, Big Bend and the Hill country west of Waterloo.

From what I've experienced, if a Texican tells you something, you can count on it, with the exception of everything is better in Texas. They kinda stretch that one.

I love Steel Magnolias! I have no doubt I will love the South, and have been saving money like crazy to get down there and check it out. It's calling to me. My husband was able to go to New Orleans years ago for a conference, and he came back obsessed with the area. I want to experience the food and culture, go for a swamp tour, see historical sites, meet the people, etc. Someday...
