Louisiana Spreads The Love When Traveling

Rather than focusing on one certain type of holiday, it appears that Louisianans enjoy a varied approach to vacations with three very different cities popping up more often than any other. Dallas, Texas takes the top spot ahead of Los Angeles, with the popular nightlife and beach scenes of Miami coming in third spot.  When traveling, it's important to note that in order to use any sort of Louisiana sportsbook promos, you must be located in the state of Louisiana.

Dallas has a ton of options for visitors, but many trips center around football. The Dallas Cowboys are known as America’s Team for a reason and many a fan plans trips to the city to see a game. For fans of the local New Orleans Saints, taking a trip to Dallas to see their state-of-the-art stadium and watch the Saints visit the Cowboys is a popular trip whenever the NFL schedule allows for it. Finding a quick, cheap nonstop flight between the cities is no problem, so trips can be planned well ahead of time or with little warning at all.

Los Angeles is a farther trek from Louisiana with a four-hour flight awaiting travelers, but it’s worth the wait when one considers all that can be done in LA. Going from the southern area of the country to out west is a big change, so whether tourists choose to stay in the city of LA or to explore the entire west coast they will enjoy a change of pace from their Louisiana reality which is often what holidays are about.

Finally, the city of Miami checks in as the third most popular search. Another warm-weather location, their beach scene and nightlife is attractive for any guest. Seeing the Miami Dolphins, Marlins, Heat or the Florida Panthers are all great options for sports fans and trips can be planned around those teams if interested.

Louisianans have a great range of options to travel to at affordable prices flying out of Lewis Armstrong Airport and judging by the results of this research, they take advantage and get out to see all of the great areas the country has to offer.
