Enjoy Louisiana!

Another unique and interesting ride is the State of Louisiana.  It is full of interesting topography and intriguing individuals as well.  The elevated highways and bridges over lakes and through bayous are like nowhere else.  The radio for the ride is noteworthy and entertaining and nowhere else do I know where one can hear a non-stop cajun-zydeco.  New Orleans is a fun place to party, as everyone knows.  But I especially enjoy rolling through the bayous and seeing the countryside.   

When looking for interesting places to check-out, I would suggest a local winery or somewhere to try some boudin and cracklins. I would probably go to the place that said ‘if it’s not the best boudin you’ve ever had, the cracklin is free.’  Sounds like some mighty good boudin and a mighty good marketing of an attractive guarantee.

To experience the bayous can make for the experience of a lifetime, in my opinion.  However, if you happen to be in New Orleans or a neighboring town on Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras day, just be careful to not turn onto the wrong street and become part of the parade as I once did sometime ago.  But either way, in the end, everything just sort of adds to the experience of being in Cajun Country and Louisiana.  It’s fun.  Check it out!
