Louisiana has something for everyone, from the world-famous Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans to the USS Kidd destroyer in Baton Rouge. The state has a rich cultural heritage, and the different ethnic and cultural groups coexist seamlessly. Zydeco cowboys play one street corner down from world-class jazz musicians, and southern Baptists live peacefully next to Catholics.
Louisiana experiences warm, humid weather for most of the year. If you're planning to visit the southern part of the state, around New Orleans and the Gulf of Mexico, the best time to go is during the late spring or early fall. During the summer, temperatures often reach above 90F and the humidity is high, making days uncomfortable and sticky. Winters are cooler, but temperatures rarely sink below 60F. In the northern part of Louisiana, winters are significantly colder, with temperatures dropping to 30F. If you plan to go to destinations like Shreveport, the best time to visit is in the late summer or early fall. Book your hotels well in advance on Orbitz.com, especially if you are visiting during Mardi Gras.
