The Creole and Cajun Culture of Southern Louisiana

While New Orleans is Louisiana's premiere travel destination, you have to make your way southwest to get an experience of true Creole and Cajun cultures. The two traditions have blended a bit over the years, especially in terms of food and music, but I'll leave you to discover the true differences when you visit the state. Nobody can explain it better to "ya'll" than the locals. All you need to know before you go is that southern Louisiana is unique.

Southwest Louisiana's Creole Nature Trail, known as "Louisiana's outback," consists of 180 miles of wetlands, beaches, and more that are ripe for boating, fishing, crabbing, hunting and wildlife and bird watching. I photographed the serene area of the Trail near Lake Charles.

I've been all over the world, but there are few places I love as much as New Orleans - especially the French Quarter. During my most recent visit, I stayed at The New Orleans Hotel Collection's small boutique 4-star property, Hotel le Marais.
