On the eastern slab of the state, where the boot that is Louisiana dabbles its toe in the Gulf of Mexico, the Greater New Orleans Area shimmers. It reaches from a curlicue delta to the Mississippi border with Lake Pontchartrain in the center. The descendants of many cultures reside in this area giving the natives an individualistic humor of their own. The city offers everything from touring Broadway companies, the world class Aquarium of the Americas and IMAX Theatre, the Audubon Zoological Gardens, and the St. Charles Avenue streetcars. There are wrought-iron balconies, secret gardens and patios, and tree- and flower-lined streets. Please don't forget the hysteria of the annual Mardi Gras revelry of parades and flambeaux lights.

Wildlife preserves lie just on the outskirts of New Orleans. Head north of the city and find the 24-mile long Lake Ponchartrain Causeway, one of the longest bridges in the world and a habitat for martins. The bridge connects the Greater New Orleans area to the rapidly growing Northshore. The area lies in the pine-scented ozone belt and is crisscrossed with underwater springs, providing wonderful Abita Springs drinking water. You'll also find several state parks, historic homes, scenic biking, hiking, and riding paths plus antique shopping, a multitude of eateries, and the Global Wildlife safari just west of the area know as the Northshore.

South of New Orleans, the good life keeps rolling along too. There are swamp tours, fishing (day or night), shrimping, crabbing, and camping. Not to mention numerous state park and small communities that each boast their own special festivals. There are a variety of activities that this area offers. Whatever your choice, you will never find this area dull!
