Louisiana Curiosities

Quirky Characters, Roadside Oddities & Other Offbeat Stuff

Book Description

Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Pelican State has to offer!

Whether you’re a born-and-raised Louisianan, a recent transplant, or just passing through, Louisiana Curiosities will have you laughing out loud as Louisiana native Bonnye Stuart takes you on a rollicking tour of the strangest sites in the Pelican State. 

 Track down some serious fun, from watching lawnmower racing and petting live alligators to attending a prison rodeo and dancing at a powwow.

 Feast your way through festivals that celebrate the state’s cultural diversity and local crops, from fiery Cajun gumbo to sweet mayhaw jelly—and stop in at the local wineries and microbreweries to quench your thirst.

Learn about the darker side of Louisiana as you tour haunted plantations, mysterious mansions, and spooky cemeteries.
