I'm sure that Louisiana has a lot to offer in the way of museums, history, family attractions and the like. I'll put a little of that on the list, but it appears to me that there are some different things in Louisiana that might be kind of fun-so I had to make room for some of that sort of stuff on the list too!
Get down on the bayou and see what the swamp is all about. As you've probably seen on television, it is kind of its own little world out there. As one site says, "The gators are waiting." I'm thinking, "Keep your arms and legs inside at all times."
There is a Voodoo Museum in New Orleans in the French Quarter that is probably reasonably priced (in 2000, it was only $5). It must be the real deal (a little sarcasm) as it is run by a practicing voodoo priest. It has just a few rooms of shabby artifacts. You won't catch me anywhere near it.but it is unusual and part of what makes the area unique.
There are several Plantations that are available for tour and it is a chance to see the old South in all it's splendor of old. If this is something of interest, look around as a few have been converted to bed and breakfast and others are run by non profits. Prices vary as well.
Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras world bills themselves as the leading producer of floats in the world and they offer tours every thirty minutes. Check out the website. The tour runs about $20 but if you are not there for Mardi Gras, I believe this might be the best way to get a feel for the grandeur of it.
The French Quarter is the oldest and most historical neighborhood in New Orleans and the most famous street is Bourbon Street. Yes, it is known primarily for its many drinking establishments. The Quarter is also known for fancy hotels and restaurants. The French Quarter was not impacted as badly as some other areas in the city by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
By the way...if you haven't tried Alligator, it is quite tasty. I'd give it a H5 for sure!
