Louisiana: 10 Shocks of Visiting Louisiana

Real Estate Tips:
Keep in mind that there are investment opportunities past just traditional stocks and bonds. Commodities are an asset class with both risks and rewards but can provide hedges against inflation. Also look at real estate income trusts to invest into the real estate market without being tied to individual pieces of property. Investing in real estate is one way to earn a return on your money as long as you choose your property wisely and purchase at a fair price. You can purchase a home and sell it when it increases in value. You can also purchase rental properties that provide you with an income, although you must deal with the headaches of being a landlord. Investing in real estate investment trusts (REITs) is another way to invest in real estate without having to actually own a physical property.

    1. New Orleans is mostly a Creole culture. Food, language, etc. If you only go to New Orleans to experience Cajun life you will be sadly disappointed. I love New Orleans but, if you want to experience Cajun food and culture, you need to travel west on I-10 to places like Lafayette, New Iberia, Abbeville, Eunice, Mamou, among other places in Acadiana.

    2. Yeah yeah , food drunks dope and accent . Then what , muggings armed robberies burglaries , rape assault slums ghettos , crooked politicians etc etc etc Shame what's happened to Louisiana . Used to be one of the nicest states in the USA.
