Louisiana is known for its deltas and coastal marshes abundant with unique species of plants and animals, if not afraid of winter rainy season - camping may be a great adventure....
Louisiana is situated in the southern part of the US.
Much of the state's lands were formed from sediment washed down the Mississippi River, leaving enormous deltas and vast areas of coastal marsh and swamp.
Louisiana is shaped like a boot. Aerospace, agribusiness and manufacturing are the key businesses of the state.
It is both the country’s second-biggest crude oil producer and refiner.
Snow accumulation in southern Louisiana is an uncommon occurrence. In Northern parts, however, flurries and dustings of snow occur every year.
The state has seen many memorable snowfalls in the recent years. Annual cyclones trouble the residents of the state significantly. The state receives copious rainfall during its short and mild winter season. There are many parks and natural settings which are popular winter attractions.
