I have been Northern Louisiana along I-20 back in 1999 and to New Orleans via I-55 in 1997 and get the impression that northern Lousiana resembles more of Mississippi and Arkansas and New Orleans and the part of Southern Lousiana reminds me a little bit of Florida with minor variations. To me, the humidity of New Orleans and Orlando are similar (very humid) but my seem different those from either one of the cities or who have visited the areas.

With the people, people from both areas were friendly but there were a couple of ladies from Southern Louisiana that were very nice people but comical at a conference in the MPLS-St.Paul area. There was a NO Saints- MN Vikings game on TV and the two ladies show their pride for the Saints and wore the jerseys, and this was up in Vikings territory. They were very talkative to say the least. Very interesting people.

I remember Northern Lousiana people being friendly as well in addition to the people in New Orleans and the Hammond area.

Thinking of the friendly people, I am getting excited to explore parts of Louisiana in four to five months, although I have several routes in my mind.

I was told today that New Orleans and Baton Rouge had no "southern feel" to them. They are more like New York then then South. Is this true????

New Orleans, definitely - it was partially settled by the same Irish and Italian immigrants who came to NY. BR is fairly southern, although it has some influence from Cajun country, north Looziana, and New Orleans, thanks to the petrochemical industry, state government, and the universities.

My general rule of thumb for splitting north and south is this (I don't want to list each parish - that'd put people to sleep ) - outside of metro NO, parishes west of the Miss River and south of Alexandria are "south Louisiana" and are majority Catholic/Cajun. Alexandria and parishes to the north are "north Louisiana" and are Protestant (Baptist) majority. That leaves the "Florida Parishes" - an area east of the Miss River from Baton Rouge east to Hammond and Bogalusa which are closer to north Louisiana than to the south. However, Baton Rouge has a little of north, south, and NO in it.
