    Lived Here All My Life

    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...
