Louisiana Mini Guide

The state of Louisiana is home to one of the most unique cities in the world, the incomparable New Orleans. Car rental in New Orleans is the best way to find out what southern sophistication and hospitality are really all about and see this vibrant city which stands out because of its French architecture, liberal residents and fantastic music.

Baton Rouge is actually the capital of the southern state of Louisiana but New Orleans is the biggest city and remains a top tourist attraction. It is possible to drive from Baton Rouge to New Orleans in a short time on the interstate 10 as the distance is about 80 miles.

Visitors to New Orleans should be aware that the state is recovering form the devastating 2005 hurricane which terrorised its populace leaving many of them without homes. But Hurricane Katrina could not keep down the friendly and fun loving people of New Orleans. The city is still as crazy as ever during Mardi Gras when people come from all over the world to listen to incredible jazz and blues music and eat the sumptuous food.

New Orleans is nicknamed the Big Easy and in this city anything goes. If you go New Orleans be sure to visit the French Quarter. The New Orleans airport is named after one of its most famous musicians and the Louis Armstrong International airport has flights to a number of domestic and international locations.

If you want to get out of the cities there are some incredible wildlife gardens at Gibson, North Black Bayou Drive. Here you can see what the swamplands of Louisiana look like and observe alligators in their natural habitat. If you are planning to go to Louisiana give it a miss during the summer when the heat is stifling and the humidity is off the scale.
