Louisiana Topography and Tourist Attractions

Louisiana is named after Louis XIV, the king of France.  Louisiana's topography consists mainly of two lowland areas, the Gulf coast plain and the Mississippi River alluvial plain.  In the southeast, much of the Mississippi Delta region is swampland.  The low-lying terrain and periodic tropical storm activity make this area prone to flooding.  North and west of the marshes, elevations rise slightly, and prairie country stretches to the Texas border.  New Orleans' French Quarter and Jean Lafitte National Historic Park are popular attractions.  For additional Louisiana travel and tourism information, visit the official Louisiana tourism site and Louisiana Atlas
