Louisiana Weekend Getaways
If you have time to plan ahead for your romantic Louisiana weekend getaway, we recommend planning it around one of Louisiana's incredible festivals. First, there are the music festivals and with the rich musical heritage of this state, you can expect that the music will be awesome. This is where Jazz was born and even if Jazz isn't your thing, remember all of the musical styles that combined to create Jazz. One great festival that really brings that all together is the Festival International de Louisiane. This event has been in action every year for a quarter of a century and celebrating south Louisiana's rich French cultural heritage. Local and Native musicians artisit perform along with artists from Europe, Africa, Canada and the Caribbean. Each October sees the Andouille Festival in LaPlace and brings the best of Lousiana's Cajun cooking into the spotlite for this 3 day event. And if food and music don't tempt you, go fly a kite... at the Kite Fest Louisiane. This dazzling event brings together professional kite fliers and hobbyists in West Baton Rouge in late March and early April to fly a dizzying array of cororful kites of all shapes and sizes. More than 10,000 folks turn out for this one of a kind event and all the fun that comes with it.

quaint little shops to explore as well as great home cooking at
local restaurants. Above all, small towns can offer real quiet and
seclusion for a perfect romantic weekend getaway.

these great cities that offer tremedous savings during the travel off seasons. Many resorts
and spas offer packages designed to entice locals to come and

Louisiana Weekend Getaway - Jet Away!
Hop a flight to see Louisiana Boardwalk or Old Ferry Landing in Port Allen or attend Festival Acadiens Bayou and Creole Food in Lafayette in October
or Folklife Festival in Monroe in September. Just because it's a weekend doesn't mean it won't be
memorable. The important thing to remember when considering far
away romantic travel with only a weekend to spare is to find something
specific you especially want to experience while you're there. Consider
checking out some of the great Louisiana events like Cotton Festival in Ville Platte in October or Tamale Fiesta in Zwolle in October.
A weekend is definitely not enough time to explore all of Louisiana,
but what could be more romantic than hopping a short flight to have
a romantic dinner and see a show on Saturday in Shreveport, and then
enjoy brunch Sunday morning and heading home. Maybe a wonderful
New Orleans resort offers a great weekend spa package for two, giving
you just enough time to relax, unwind and connect with one another.
The best thing about weekend getaways is they help give us great
ideas for future travel destinations. Imagine when you're coworkers
ask you "So what did you do this weekend?" you can say
"Well, on Saturday I had lunch... in New Orleans."
