Louisiana Apartments for Rent

Apartments for Rent | Search By State | Louisiana Apartments

A state with a population of around 4.2 million, Louisiana's charm sets it apart. Its capital city is Baton Rouge, but the most well known city is New Orleans, the site of the annual Mardi Gras festival and an important city in music history. Mahalia Jackson, known as the Queen of Gospel and once called "the single most powerful black woman in the United States," was born in New Orleans, which today hosts the famous New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Cajun and Creole cultures predominate in the southernmost areas of the state, and so many people speak French that the language is officially recognized in Louisiana, along with English. One of the many benefits of having such a cultural melting pot? Great food.
Finding apartments to rent in New Orleans should be straightforward, and searching for apartments in Shreveport is another good option if you're looking to move to Louisiana. Outside of these larger cities and into Cajun Country, Louisiana has bayous, shallow rivers that support unique ecosystems full of alligators and Spanish moss. Another unique ecosystem is Lake Pontchartrain, the state's largest, intriguingly salty, lake . its saltiness is thought to perhaps be an indicator of where the Mississippi river once met the sea. Louisiana is the state with the 5th greatest amount coastline, with nearly 400 miles of coast; its state bird is the pelican. Its coastal location meant New Orleans saw the full force of Hurricane Katrina; in the aftermath the city has seen community and structural redevelopment activities that have lent the city a new sense of vitality. Renting apartments near major universities such as Tulane, Centenary College of Louisiana, Loyola University New Orleans, and Dillard University will allow you to enjoy the laid-back, friendly culture of Louisiana and the benefits of postsecondary education.
