Known for its amazing food, mystifying music and all-around engaging personality, this charming state draws travellers to book Louisiana flights each year.

In August 2005, thousands of visitors flocked to Louisiana to help rebuild the state after Hurricane Katrina’s devastating effects, and provided homes for those who lost everything in the hurricane. The Louisiana spirit prevailed and today, the state and its famous town New Orleans continue to thrive thanks to travellers on Louisiana flights.

Visitors booking flights to Louisiana head south for the fantastic food, outstanding music, and Louisiana hospitality, but there’s more to Louisiana than the French Quarter and Bourbon Street. Nature lovers can find cheap flights to Louisiana during the eight-month hunting season. Rent a bike and tour plantation country, or find a fishing spot at one of Louisiana’s 150 lakes, bayous, streams, or wetlands.

Whether the flight to Louisiana lands you in the heart of New Orleans or hiking in the outskirts of the Gulf Coast, any trip to the Bayou State is an awesome experience.

Getting around Louisiana

New Orleans has a great public bus system and the oldest streetcar service in the country, which has been designated a National Historic Monument. The buses are the cheapest way to get around, but they can be slow. Vintage St Charles streetcars can take you uptown while the Riverfront streetcar runs along the Mississippi River for two miles. Make sure you have exact change for the buses and streetcars. You can also get VisiTour passes that offer one to three days of unlimited rides on the streetcars and buses. The best way to get around at night is by hailing or calling for a cab. There are plenty of taxis to be found, and a metered ride won’t cost you much. If you want to take a tour of New Orleans, try hiring a cab to take you and up to four of your friends around the city. Head out on the water aboard the Canal Street Ferry for a great view of New Orleans’ skyline. The ferry is free for pedestrians and will take you out to suburban Algiers. It’s easy to drive in the city, but parking is another story.

What is good to know if travelling to Louisiana?

  • Though not the state’s capital, the most populous and popular destination in Louisiana is New Orleans. The city is once again back on the tourist trail after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. A popular outing from the city is on one of the numerous swamp tours. Weaving their boats in and out of cypress trees and weeping willows, the tour guides entice the gators close to the boat with offerings of marshmallows.
  • Baton Rouge is the capital of the state and the fastest growing city in the South. The city is very flat, so if you want to get a good view of it, you need to head upwards. Visit the Louisiana State Capitol. At 137 metres (450ft), with 34 floors, it is the tallest capitol building in the US. From the observation deck you get an excellent view of the city.
  • Gibsland is home to the Bonnie and Clyde Ambush Museum, on the site where the infamous gangster duo were shot dead. “Highlights” of the museum include one of Clyde’s shotguns, a tire that he stole and gave to an old man and the V8 Ford, riddled with bullet holes, that was used in the film.
  • The old town of Natchitoches has been designated a national historic landmark. This is the original French settlement in Louisiana, and much of it is well preserved. The town was also the location of the film Steel Magnolias. The home which appeared in the film is now a B&B on Jefferson Street , the Steel Magnolia House. Stay in Shelby’s room for $150 a night.
  • The Kisatchie National Forest, in the Crossroads region of Louisiana, is a spectacular 800,000 acre park. Popular with hikers, the area is covered by pine and cypress trees. There is an abundance of wildlife to be spotted: armadillos, raccoons, alligators, bears, possums and deer.
