We live here, we know it's awesome! The Louisiana Dept of Tourism has compiled a list of the Top 100 reasons why people should visit our great state, so feel free to pass this along to all your non Bayou State relatives and friends!

Here's my Top 5:

Mardi Gras, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, boiled crawfish ANYWHERE, local Louisiana artisans and art galleries, boudin and cracklin (These count as one for me, since I can't eat one without the other!) And I'm going to throw in a little lagniappe-The Atchafalaya Basin is one of the true wonders of natural beauty in the whole USA.

What is your favorite part about being here in the great state of Louisiana??
