Louisiana is a flavorful fusion of culture, arts, architecture, and cuisine. Named after the French king Louis IV, the state has a rich history. The legacy of French and Spanish colonialism, the Creoles of New Orleans, the Cajuns of Southern Louisiana, and settlers of practically every nationality make the state truly unique. State’s constitution acknowledges “the right of people to speak and promote their respective historic, linguistic, and cultural origins,” whether English, French, Spanish, or otherwise.
Cost of living in Louisiana is about 5 percent lower than the national average. Affordable housing, health care, and some of the lowest utility rates in the nation make the state a comfortable place to settle down.
Families with kids will be able to choose from a variety of excellent public, private, and magnet school options that provide a high level of education combined with some innovative activities. And state’s many top-rated universities and colleges offer a wide range of academic opportunities to those looking to get a degree.
There is no place for boredom in Louisiana. Festivals celebrating everything imaginable are held in every corner of the state all year-round. Shrimp and Petroleum Fest in Morgan City, Strawberry Festival in Ponchatoula, and Crawfish Festival in Chalmette are just a few. And of course, the famous Mardi Gras celebration draws millions (!) of people to the state each year.
