The Louisiana Office of Tourism (LOT) has released its 2022 Louisiana Inspiration Guide. This year, LOT partnered with local artist, celebrity ambassador and American Idol winner Laine Hardy. Laine has also been featured in the “Louisiana Is A Trip” advertising campaign promoting Louisiana’s unique off-the-beaten-path experiences and performed with The Hot 8 Brass Band on Louisiana’s award-winning Tournament of Roses parade float.
“Laine Hardy has been an outstanding ambassador for Louisiana and partnering with him has been a truly wonderful experience,” said Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser. “His love of Louisiana is evident in his music and in the passion he shows when speaking about our great state. Working with Laine to share all the ways you can Feed Your Soul in Louisiana has been hugely successful and very rewarding.”
The 2022 Inspiration Guide provides visitors with details on new attractions and restaurants across the state as well as information about traditional Louisiana foods, festivals, state parks, byways, and outdoor adventure. Unique accommodations are also included, along with regional spotlights of the unique culture and landscape stretching from South to North Louisiana.
“Our Inspiration Guide is a great resource not only for visitors from outside of Louisiana, but for Louisianans looking to take a one-of-a-kind staycation right here in their home state,” added Lt. Governor Nungesser. “I’d like to encourage everyone to pick up a copy of the guide and take a look – you’re guaranteed to learn about something new and unique that you can explore.”
