They don't call us 'Hollywood of the South' for nothing. Louisiana has become the 'go to' place for filming tv shows, movies, and music videos, mainly because the state offers such great tax breaks. We'll take it!

I recently came upon a list of movies that were filmed in beautiful Iberia Parish, and if you are looking for a spring road trip to visit some of these locations, check out the spots below. Thanks to Iberia Travel for the inspiration!
