    Lived Here All My Life

    Ive lived in Louisiana my entire life. I love it and hate it at the same time. Hate the humidity and the extremely hot summers and the no snow winters. I love the culture and the food. Mardi gras is incredible and Halloween is even better in the French Quarter. You haven't lived...

    Home Sweet Home

    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...

    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...

    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...
