The best food on the planet and Louisiana are just about synonymous. This state lays claim to two different types of cuisine: Cajun and Creole. Although sometimes grouped together, each has its own unique flavor. The differences have more to do with the ancestry behind the cuisine, than with the ingredients per se, but you can only get true Creole and true Cajun food in Louisiana. Gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish, shrimp etouffee and red beans and rice are just a few of the yummy staples found here. You’ll have ample opportunities to work off that good food with exercise.
Because of its year-round fishing, hunting, golf and other outdoor recreational opportunities, Louisiana has been nicknamed a “Sportsman’s Paradise.” Hiking, biking, numerous bird watching trails and a very large game preserve make this state a natural playground for any outdoors person. Non-sporting people may find plantations, boating on Lake Pontchartrain and visiting New Orlean’s French Quarter more to their liking. But playing comes after working.
Having its southern border on the Gulf of Mexico gives Louisiana a strategic location as the largest U.S. port. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce ranks this state number one for U.S. exports. Forbes recently named Louisiana “America’s New Frontier for Business.” Employers include technology start-ups, Fortune 500 icons, nationally recognized universities and producers of crude oil and natural gas among others.
Couple the state’s low cost of living and affordable housing with its strong economy and not much in the way of taxes, and Sportsman’s Paradise seems an ideal place to live. Although you might have to get used to the humidity.
In the four largest cities; New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Shreveport and Lake Charles; the average annual humidity ranges from 72 to 78 percent. Average yearly precipitation in northern Louisiana runs about 48 inches, while in the southern part of the state the total average annual rainfall is 68 inches. Yearly annual temperature averages range in the upper 60s for the entire state.
The weather makes it easy for fans to cheer on their favorite football teams. Following the New Orleans Saints and the Louisiana State University Tigers is just as much a religion as going to church on Sunday for most Louisianians.
People in the service also reside here. The Army’s only Combat Training Center, Fort Polk, is located in West-Central Louisiana. Although a small installation of about 8,000 soldiers, Fort Polk offers many educational opportunities, sports and outdoor recreation facilities for service members and their families.
And back to food. A stop at the Café DuMonde in New Orleans for coffee and beignets (a square piece of dough fried and covered with powdered sugar) is always a priority.
