The Americans purchased Louisiana from the French in 1803 for just 15 million dollars. Just come and visit the state of Louisiana and you will see that they got their money's worth (especially if you take into consideration that they got the states of Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa, Wyoming, South Dakota, Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana and New Mexico for free as part of the deal).

For travelers New Orleans is the first thing on the Cajun menu. This city is pretty different from any other in the US and is vibrant with life. The old French Quarter of the city is one of the most attractive places in the whole of the country. Lafayette and Lugu Lake offer more attractions from the time of the Acadians.

The whole of the state is dotted with mansions dating back to the 19th century or even further. Plantation Country - with Baton Rouge as its most important city - is packed with them. Just minutes from the New Orleans airport, you'll find Destrehan Plantation, built in 1787. Nearby is Ormond Plantation, the oldest French West Indies style Creole plantation on the river. Further upriver, the snow white ballroom at Nottoway, the South's largest plantation home, will take your breath away and there is a lot more.

Northern Louisiana is great for an active holiday. It is perfect for hunting duck, deer and fortunes. Whether your goal is to land a big trophy bass or to win big at one of the casinos, you'll have a great time here.
