Louisiana sweats southern charm with a mix of Cajun flavor. If you are looking for excitement or a way to lounge away the stress of your everyday life, buying a vacation home in Louisiana will give you some of the best bang for your buck. You can buy a historic home in the bayou dating back to the 1800’s and earlier, fully renovated for $100,000 or less. If you are an outdoors type, this tropical climate will give you a safe haven while you explore some of the most diverse and exciting wildlife our country has to offer. With everything in Louisiana costing relatively less than the rest of the country you can easily get around on a budget. Although, the endless line of personal cooks willing to come to your home and provide breakfast, lunch and dinner, for half the cost of eating out would be the state’s nicest pleasure.
