Thank you, Crystal, for this opportunity to share about my home state of Louisiana. I’ve lived here in Louisiana most of my life and love so many of the things that make it unique. I blog at A Glimpse of Our Life, and that often includes glimpses of our state.
If you visit Louisiana, you might see an alligator, especially if you go on a swamp tour, but that’s only one of the things that people ask about. Louisiana is a rich diverse blend of cultures with strong French, Spanish, and Native American roots. Even our food is unique. Muffulettas, pralines, beignets, and King cake are just a few of our state’s high-fat delicacies.
If you have the chance to tour one of our Antebellum homes or plantations, it’s like a step back in time. Magnolia Mound Plantation is one that we enjoyed touring with friends. The WWII Museum and the Tabasco factory at Avery Island are also both educational and unique places to tour.
From crawfish and jazz music in South Louisiana to cotton fields covering the fields on both sides of the road as you drive north, the things that make us memorable are enjoyed around the world.
If you heard of the catastrophic flooding in south Louisiana last year, you may have also heard of our Cajun Navy.
Louisiana is also known as Sportsman’s Paradise. Hunting and fishing are popular throughout our state. Farming has changed a lot through the years, but there are still many farms in our state.
We live on a pine tree farm in South Louisiana.
If you’re interested in even more about Louisiana, come see it for yourself; it’s sure to be a memorable vacation!
