When visiting, accommodations are of the utmost importance, safety, price, and parking are also high on the least. What type of accommodations will you need? How many people are in your party? What type of transportation are you arriving in? All of these questions will ultimately decide the type of stay you will ultimately need to book.

The good news is, that there are a vast set of choices to choose from depending on taste and budget such as hotels, timeshares, condos, vacation homes, B&Bs, and luxury residences, to staying outdoors at state parks in a cabin or an RV park. Some of the best choices and stays are in New Orleans with good reason. NOLA was named the #3 Top Destination For City Lovers in the U.S. and the New York Times 2024 top places to stay in Louisiana.

However, it's unique stays that win the day and the B&Bs are at the top of the list. Hotel Guru notes there are many beautifully interesting and historic sites along the Mississippi River to tour and visit outside of New Orleans. Expedia lists places like Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Shreveport, and more offering fascinating museums, rare birds, and wildlife immerse yourself in culture by following the Creole Nature Trail, the Cameron Prairie National Wildlife Refuge, or go fishing, kayaking, hiking, and cycling with Booking.com.
