There are a lot of great things happening in Louisiana. Here are some story ideas
"Louisiana Tourism: Open for business"
In spite of the BP tragedy in the Gulf, travelers can still enjoy the same amazing experiences Louisiana has to offer, from its fresh seafood to its vibrant culture.
"Louisiana: land of festivals"
With more than 400 festivals each year – more than one each day, on average – it's easy to see why Louisiana is often called the "festival capital" of America. We celebrate just about every crop harvested, every indigenous dish cooked, every type of music that's played here. No matter when you visit, you can find a festival that likely will feature live music, great food and abundant opportunities for meeting new friends.
"Louisiana’s culinary signatures"
Sometimes it seems like Louisiana speaks its own language in the kitchen. Gumbo, jambalaya, étouffée? These words just don’t come up much in everyday American cooking. Fortunately, the best way to learn Louisiana’s edible lingo is simply to sit down and start eating.
