When it comes to having a good time, Louisiana is the state that is top-notch above the rest. That is my opinion, but there is such a variety and culture that is here in Louisiana. Whether it's the musical sounds of Zydeco, or Creole Music, The exclusive 'Hand Grenades' that you can find in New Orleans. Maybe the best food, and Gumbo that you can only find done authentically here in Louisiana. The good thing about that is you don't have to eat out to get Gumbo. Any Louisiana resident can whip up a pot right there in the kitchen.

The spirits are great in Louisiana, and if you are looking for great wines to try out here are some wineries that are right here in Louisiana. All it takes is a tank of gas, maybe a night or two hotels stay, and leave the rest to these great folks to take care of your bubbly needs.

The experience can be for a date or just a group get-together. My family and I went to one in Atlanta a few years ago, and the experience was monumental. You really get a chance to check out a variety of wines, and you can also purchase them as well. I would advise you to take a look at some of these at home first and get ready to be hooked like we were.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
