    I can't really compare Louisiana to anywhere else since I have never lived more than 30 miles from where I grew up. Our waterways rule for recreational boating, particularly on the Amite River Diversion Canal. Take a tour on an airboat. Watch out for the alligators and...

    It's the Place For Friendly People

    I'm so proud to be from Louisiana.  Our culture is different from anywhere else in the US, and it spoils us so much!  I didn't even realize how special it was to live there until I moved away as an adult.  It was only when I was 23 and moved to Georgia that I found...

    Oh Boy....

    I've lived here my whole life.  I guess it's ok..  I've just always had the desire to live in a big city. Apart from the small city aspect, I love everything else about Louisiana.  I don't think I'd be able to handle not having the awesome food.  I like...

    Lived Here All My Life
