There is plenty of information about Louisiana available online, which can be very useful to visitors to the area. 

            A good place to begin doing some research is on the Official Louisiana Tourism Website .  This is a typical US state site, and contains plenty of useful information for first time travelers and returning visitors to the area.  The Louisiana Regions link (found on the home page) can be quite helpful in deciding which part of the state to explore.  Each of the five regions has brief description of what can be found there.  Louisiana has a culture all of its own, and with this comes plenty of unique events and festivals.  The Event Search link (found on the homepage) allows the user to find major state happenings based on location, type, or date.

            Looking at more than one source of information about a place is always a good idea.  Two more websites providing good information about Louisiana are the Cultural Tourism site and Environmental Tourism site.

            For legislative, business and legal issues, check out the Louisiana Government website.

            A good way to get to know an unfamiliar area better is by studying its geography.  Start by looking at a Map of Louisiana.

            For weather information about most major cities and towns in the state, visit the Weather Channel website.
