    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...

    Crazy Laws In Louisiana

    I came across this article in the local paper the other day and thought it was hilarious. Laws are put in place to keep the public safe but some of these strange rules and regulations on the books have us scratching our heads. These are real laws that we have down here today...

    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...

    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...
