Famous People
Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong, from the infamous Storyville district of New Orleans, became a world-famous jazz musician. Also, he was just flat-out awesome.

Jim Garrison was born in Iowa, but spent most of his life and career in New Orleans. He is either the only man who really knew the truth behind the Kennedy assassination, or he was a paranoid nutbag. You decide!

Famous Landmarks
Atchafalaya Basin covers more than 500,000 acres of swampland. This is the largest undeveloped wetlands in all of the U.S. This fact makes real-estate developers apoplectic.

Interesting Facts
Loozianna is just packed wall-to-wall with voodoo witch doctors, gumbo and Jazz musicians. Also vampires, apparently.
