Louisiana Television Series
Louisiana is a popular setting and filming location for several hit TV shows.
The stories and adventures of alligator hunters in Louisiana are being told in the TV series "Swamp People" on the History Channel.
It's the dawn of a new alligator season in Louisiana, and another season of "Swamp People" on the History Channel. The series is filmed in towns such as Pierre Part and Pecan Island bordering the bayous, the great Atchafalaya swamp, and the Gulf of Mexico.
The show follows a group of alligator trappers during the 30-day Louisiana alligator season in various areas of South Louisiana, including the huge Atchafalaya Basin Swamp in the Atchafalaya Basin in south central Louisiana.
The History Channel premiered Season 11 on Thursday, January 23, 2020, at 9/8C.
Louisiana Swamp Tours
Visitors to Louisiana often experience the Bayou State firsthand, by touring the swamps!
Swamp tour operators provide a variety of options, boats, tour length and cost. Some use flat bottom boats, other airboats. Kayak and canoe tours are also available.
Acadiana is a vast region encompassing 22 parishes in French Louisiana in the southern part of the state.
The residents in the area are descended from various native American and nationalities, but many are "Cajuns", descendants of 18th-century Acadian exiles from Canada's Maritime Provinces.
Many of the state's amazing antebellum mansions remain intact, and are meticulously maintained and furnished with beautiful period pieces.
These classic homes and gardens are located all over the state, with large concentrations along the Great River Road, and across south and central Louisiana, and in "Plantation Country" near Baton Rouge.
The lush growth in a Louisiana swamp is indescribable.
The most impressive objects are the cypress trees which are very graceful in their structure with their reddish bark, exquisitely bent branches, and delicately fine leaves.
Visitors love taking swamp tours to experience first hand these natural beauties.
With some 400 different festivals each year, it’s easy to see why Louisiana is often called the Festival Capital of America.
We celebrate every crop harvested, every indigenous dish, and every type of music.
From the Crawfish Festival in Breaux Bridge in South Louisiana, to the Peach Festival in Ruston to the north, there is a festival for everyone!
