Trip to Louisiana


I will be in NO this October and I would also like to drive to Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Houma, etc... I would need to know if only New Orleans was damaged or there are also problems in other towns.

What would you recommend?? Which are the most interesting/beautiful towns?

Thanks for your help!

New Orleans...

The other areas of the state are fine. West of Lafayette you might see some damage from Rita which hit closer to Texas. Houma was on the edge of both storms but I don't believe it received any major flooding or damage.

Lafayette is the center of Cajun culture. From there it is easy to get to New Iberia. There are several plantations along the river road to Baton Rouge and north of Baton Rouge.
