Living in Louisiana

From the casinos in the north to the bayous of the south, Louisiana has a character all its own.

Shreveport: Where Texas Attitude Meets Cajun Country

In the northwestern Louisiana city of Shreveport, you might be surprised by the variety and unique character of this bustling city. Most people expect Cajun food and jazz music in a Louisiana city. However, Shreveport's proximity to Texas adds country, bluegrass and folk music to the mix, as well as culinary influences, such as large T-bone steaks and thick-cut fries. Venture outside of your apartment and into the many attractions Shreveport has to offer. Visit Sci-Port downtown, a sprawling science and entertainment center, where you can study hundreds of science, space science, technology and math exhibits. Feeling lucky? Try your hand at a game of Black Jack or play the slots at one of the five riverboat casinos in the area. Shreveport is a unique blend of big Texas style and colorful Louisiana spice.

Live on the Beautiful Ouachita River in Monroe

Maybe you'd rather stay in northeastern Louisiana with an apartment in or around Monroe. Living in Monroe or any city in Louisiana means you'll be conveniently located to tasty, local food. Choices range from Creole to Chinese and ambiance varies from elegant, fine dining to casual, family-style buffets. Natural beauty abounds and Monroe is near the scenic Ouachita River, which National Geographic once recognized as one of the 10 most beautiful rivers in America. There are many options for outdoor recreation. Go for a walk on a nature trail in Kiroli Park, play a round of golf at Forsythe Park, or take the family to Chenier Lake Park for a day of boating and a night of camping. The Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo is also a great family activity.

Baton Rouge: Bayou Living with a Cajun Kick

Explore Baton Rouge for a city full of local flavor, not only in the delicious Cajun food, but in the geography, traditions and history of the area. Living in Baton Rouge, you'll be in the largest city near the Cajun country. That means you'll be surrounded by incredible flavorful Cajun and Louisiana Creole food. Local pastimes and attractions celebrate and honor the bayou and Louisianans of the past. Bayou and swamp tours are popular and abundant in the area and allow passengers to tour canals and swampy lakes with old cypress trees, wildlife (such as alligators, birds, turtles, egrets and nutria), semi-tropical villages and more. Louisiana State University is located in Baton Rouge, and it's a big deal to the people and the economy of Louisiana.

Join Your Crewe and Enjoy the Jazz in New Orleans

Move to New Orleans and enjoy year-round cultural celebrations, a lifetime of delicious food and enough attractions in the area to fill every weekend. Gumbo, etouffee and beignets, oh my! Whether your New Orleans apartment is in the French Quarter, the Garden District, the Riverfront or any other neighborhood, you won't be far from delicious dishes like these. The city is home to a variety of great international restaurants, but traditional New Orleans food is derived from flavors of classic French, Cajun and Louisiana Creole ingredients. You'll also enjoy world-class museums, mardi gras, red hot jazz and much more. So get ready to hit the streets, the parks or the swamps of New Orleans.
