Louisiana has a rich, colorful background with a multicultural, multilingual heritage. The state has become a popular tourist destination with New Orleans being the major attraction, known particularly for its picturesque French Quarter and the annual Mardi Gras celebration, held since 1838.

Visit Awakenings for information about Louisiana and its special poetry, Louisiana Bayou.

Sharla Shults‘s insight:

Louisiana’s state painting was a collaborative father-son effort. The painting titled "Louisiana" contains a representation for all symbols and commonly accepted icons of the state. The painting is dominated by the state colors of gold, white, and blue.

    You know, there’s a movie: Steel Magnolias, which is located in Louisiana… I love it. 🙂 It seems to be very special there. I’ve only stayed in Louisiana for three days so far – but I might go back one day. 🙂
