Louisiana Holidays

Music, Mardi Gras and the Mississippi

Home to unspoilt wilderness and the grand Mississippi, Louisiana is full of adventure.

Discover the vibrant city of New Orleans, party during Mardi Gras and step back in time at one of the state's many historic plantations. If it's wildlife that you want to embrace, head to one of Louisiana's marshy swamplands to spot the formidable alligators, or visit one of the many parks and gardens to soak up the green space and fresh air. Louisiana is an endless list of possibilities. 

Partner your Louisiana visit with Memphis or Texas: both known for their big, bold characters. Or, enjoy a contrasting trip to Las Vegas, where the Strip is bright and the entertainment even brighter, or head to Cancun for a slice of sunshine.
