Among the states, Louisiana has a unique culture, owing to its
French colonial heritage. While the state has no declared "official language,"
its law recognizes both English and French. Today, English is by far the main
language of everyday life, but French is spoken by nearly 5% of the population
and its influence can be seen in local dialects and in many place names.
There are lagoons such as Lake Ponchartrain, oxbow lakes made by
Mississippi River cutoffs, and other lakes where the slow streams are clogged. A
variety of recreational facilities makes the state an excellent vacationland;
some of its lakes (e.g., Pontchartrain) have been highly developed as resort
areas, and there is superb hunting and fishing throughout much of the region.
