Louisiana at a Glance

Bossier City, Louisiana - Compare Hotels

Bossier City, Louisiana

The area of Bossier City, Louisiana, dates back to the 1830's and its origins in the Elysian Groves Plantation.

From Louisiana Downs, one of the nation's largest thoroughbred racetracks, to the American Rose Center, North America's largest park dedicated to the cultivation of the rose, and three dockside riverboat casinos, Shreveport-Bossier features activities and opportunities to delight visitors and residents alike.

If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of Louisiana during the summer! Unless you’ve come to gamble in the air-conditioned casinos well into the sultry night.

New Orleans, Louisiana - Compare Hotels

New Orleans, Louisiana

With more than 20,000 rooms available, there is no shortage of accommodations in the Big Easy.

The novice to New Orleans is faced with a slew of decisions. Rental car vs. city transportation. Jazz at House of Blues vs. jazz at Preservation Hall. Beignets vs. muffalettas. Why hassle with choosing the right hotel?

It's no secret that long, hot summers are associated with New Orleans. Like much of the deep South, summer is sweltering. This is a cheap time to visit the Big Easy, if you can stomach the humidity.

Louisiana Travel Notes

New Orleans, Louisiana

Over Da River Is Algiers Point: by Leon Schwarzbaum.

At the foot of Charles Street, join the Algerians (that's right, Algerians) commuting via the free ferry across the Mississippi River to Algiers Point and Old Algiers. Go, as the natives say, "over da river" and back in time.

Cookin' in New Orleans: by Leon Schwarzbaum.

They come to party, they come to ride the river boats, they come to gamble and they come to eat. Tourists come to New Orleans to let the good times roll. But some are drawn by the cooking schools.

The New Orleans School of Cooking is located in a renovated molasses warehouse built in the early 1800's in the heart of the French Quarter.

Discovering the French Quarter: by Lee Ann Paradise.

Known for its sumptuous culinary delights and some of the best jazz music in the world, a visit to New Orleans, Louisiana wouldn't be complete without time spent in the famed French Quarter.

Magazine Street: by Leon Schwarzbaum.

For six miles, parallel to the Mississippi River, uptown (upriver) from Canal Street at the edge of the French Quarter, to Audubon Park, Magazine Street evokes images of New York's East Village and Los Angeles' Melrose Avenue.

New Orleans Swamp Romp: by Priscilla Estes.

Opportunities abound for adventure. Swamp land surrounds the island of New Orleans, creating countless bayous, wetlands and waterways, and a generous variety of swamp tours. From a rustic canoe for two to a fancy schooner for 50, there are swamp jaunts to float everybody's boat.

The King of All Jazz Festivals: by Rita Cook.

For more than 30 years, New Orleans has consistently thrown the jazz festival of all jazz festivals with the likes of Fats Domino, Bruce Hornsby, Earth, Wind and Fire, Al Jarreau and the Neville Brothers live on stage.

Where the Ghouls Are: by Kimberly Reed Barker.

With an history rich in deviant behavior ghostbusters, researchers, paraspsychologists and scam artists come to investigate the musty streets of the French Quarter for specters and ghouls who were killed violently during years gone by.

While the ghosts of New Orleans can't find peace because of how they died, the ghostbusters can't find peace until they prove they're out there.
