Visitors to Louisiana learn quickly that “Cajun culture” isn’t just a label — it’s a lifestyle. Here, life’s a little different than the rest of the country: locals are as passionate about their music as they are food and football, and heritage is infused in all corners of the Bayou State. Whether you want to visit a mansion steeped in history or order your po'boy “dressed” at a Cajun restaurant — or maybe even dance to a zydeco band where the bowling is lagniappe (that’s a little something extra), here are 13 attractions that Louisianans love.
