  • Perfect for our Event!

    "I absolutely loved staying at this beautiful historic home. The high ceilings, wonderful character and great scene-watching patio/balcony made this perfect for the 50th birthday celebration of 2 of my best friends. Walking distance to the riverside and Bourbon Street. Memories to last a lifetime!"

    "Calvin was easygoing & very helpful with food & music recs. The location couldn't have been better! Bus out front, quick walk to streetcar, and not too far to walk to French Quarter or Frenchmen St or Audobon Pk or Tulane or all around Garden District & funky Magazine St. A dream come true for our first kid free trip in 13 years!"

  • Good location/Great experience

    "Charming definately describes this house. The house was clean and very well maintained. Our group of 6 really enjoyed the experience of staying in a local neighborhood. It was a short walk to the Quarter and we felt safe even walking back late at night. The neighbors were so friendly and helpful. The owner was prompt with response and was very accomodating. We would certainly consider staying here again."

Louisiana Travel Tips

Getting to Louisiana Vacation Rentals

Louisiana is located on the Gulf of Mexico in the southern region of the United States. It is bordered by Texas to the west, Arkansas to the north and Mississippi to the east. The major city and tourist attraction in Louisiana is New Orleans. This is also the primary access point for the state. The Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport hosts numerous international and regional airlines. There are many flights that route via New Orleans to Central America and the Caribbean islands. A second international airport is found in Alexandria. Baton Rouge has a Metropolitan airport. Regional airports can be found in Shreveport, Monroe, Lake Charles, and Lafayette. Louisiana has an extensive road network which makes getting around Louisiana easy. For those visiting the areas of Lake Charles and Orange, you may consider flying into Houston as it is the closest airport to those spots.

Visitors to Louisiana House Rentals

Most visitors to Louisiana are attracted by the great weather and festive atmosphere of New Orleans. The home of Jazz, New Orleans has a rich musical and cultural heritage. Enjoy performances in the many bars and cafés in the French Quarter. Louisiana also has a rich historical heritage and those who enjoy browsing museums will have many sites and exhibits to choose from.

Festive and Historic Attractions at Louisiana Condos

Perhaps Louisiana’s best-known attraction is the mighty Mississippi River. Many a legend and tale has been told of the river and the personalities that have sailed her fast flowing waters. Steamboats once provided transportation for both cargo and passengers into the interior of the United States. Today, only a handful of tourist steam boats remain. The Steamboat Nachez is an authentic steamboat and the ninth to carry its name. The Nachez runs regular day trips up the Mississippi from New Orleans. The World War Two Museum in New Orleans has some fascinating exhibits and personal accounts from soldiers and people involved in the war.

The French Quarter is possibly one of the city's most famous landmarks. It is the site of the festive Mardi Gras which takes place each year. Here, you can enjoy great food, entertainment and culture in a number of interesting cafés and restaurants. About 30 miles north of New Orleans, you will find the small town of Abita Springs. It is here that a brewery was founded in 1986. Abita Beer is widely known and enjoyed throughout the region. In the northern parts of Louisiana, you will find the towns of Ruston and Monroe. Monroe is the home to the Louisiana Purchase Garden and Zoo. This historical and recreational site is great for visiting with the family. The North Louisiana Military Museum is located in Ruston. The museum showcases more than 150 years of military history.

Best Seasons to Visit Louisiana

Located on the Gulf of Mexico Louisiana receives both the best and worst of the Gulf's weather. In the late summer months, New Orleans and the low lying coastal regions are often battered by hurricanes and tropical storms. However, don’t let this deter you from visiting as the hurricane incidents are isolated and usually storm warnings are sent out in advance. For most of the year, Louisiana has a consistent subtropical climate. New Orleans is recorded as having 60 percent sunshine all year long. With its location on the coastal floodplain, the daily temperature variations are not large. This changes the further inland you travel. While winters can be cold up north with occasional snowfalls, it rarely drops below freezing in the south.
