Benefits of Living in Louisiana

If you’re leaving your home in New York to move to Louisiana, you may be curious about what awaits you in The Bayou State. Louisiana is home to many friendly residents who’ve lived in the state their whole lives and several northern visitors who decided to stay in the state permanently. The state’s weather, culture, cuisine and atmosphere contrast sharply to that of New York, but you’re going to enjoy every minute of living in Louisiana. Before your trip, you can check all the incredible experiences that await you in Louisiana.

You'll Notice

The Difference in Climate

The first thing you’ll notice when you reach Louisiana is the temperature difference. The state’s heat and humidity can make summers steaming, but if you’re used to cold winters, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the weather in winter. Louisiana has mild winter temperatures that rarely dip below freezing. Down jackets, long underwear and thick gloves are not required in the deep south. You’re out of luck for a white Christmas, but strolling down the street with short sleeves in December can be a welcome change.

Prepare for

The Stormy Gulf

Although Louisiana generally has excellent weather, its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico makes it vulnerable to tropical storms and hurricanes. New York has had its share of storms slamming the coast in recent years, but the severity and frequency of Gulf storms make Louisiana more vulnerable to flash flooding and wind damage. Several improvements in building codes and infrastructure repairs have strengthened the state’s ability to weather the storms, but you should always be prepared during hurricane season.

The Gulf’s stormy nature may seem intimidating, but it’s typically much calmer than the Atlantic or Pacific coasts when it’s not threatened by storms. The area’s small waves are not ideal for surfers, but it’s a paradise for anglers and swimmers who love crystal clear water.


Cost of Living Relief

One of the primary benefits of moving from the north to Louisiana is the lower cost of living. New York’s housing and rental markets are more unstable than those in Louisiana. The median price of a US home is around $231,000, but a home in Louisiana averages around $134,000. The average costs of utilities, transportation, healthcare and groceries are much cheaper in Louisiana.

The state’s lower prices allow you to find a larger property with a smaller mortgage premium than you’re used to in New York. Your dollar goes farther in LA, and if you’re looking for employment, the state has a variety of industries frequently searching for skilled employees.

These are The Primary

Industries of Louisiana

Coal, chemical and petroleum products are a significant part of Louisiana’s economy, but the state also is heavily invested in agriculture and other industries. The state’s main crop is sugar cane, but corn, cotton, soybeans and rice are also vital to the area’s wealth.

In recent years, several large industries have moved to Louisiana because of its low taxes and incentives. Aerospace, film, advanced manufacturing, software development and automotive manufacturing are gaining momentum in the state, and if you have skills relevant to these industries, you may be in line for a position.

Enjoy the

Down Home Charm

Compared to the often fast-paced atmosphere up north, Louisiana’s culture is less rushed and more relaxed. Unlike many of the metropolitan areas in New York, the state’s largest city, New Orleans, has a population of less than 400,000. You can walk down the streets of New Orleans on a busy weekend without bumping into a mob of people.

The southern charm of the state may take you by surprise when you pass a group of strangers smiling and shouting hello, but after a short time, you’re likely to do the same to other pedestrians.


Out of This World Food

New York is world-famous for its food, and fortunately, so is Louisiana. There isn’t a state in the south with food like the Bayou State, and you’re likely to forget some of your favorite NY restaurants when you make a trip to New Orleans or Baton Rouge.

The Cajun and Creole influences have shaped the state’s cuisine into culinary perfection. Chicken gumbo, shrimp etouffee, beignets, spicy crawfish and jambalaya are only a few delicious meals you’ll frequently consume. At many restaurants and bars across the state, you can enjoy the food while listening to incredible music.

Louisiana Is for Music Lovers

Louisiana is home to jazz and Dixieland, and its music scene draws tourists from around the world. Outdoor performances occur daily in cities like New Orleans, and many are held on street corners and small parks so everyone can enjoy them. In New Orleans, you can head to Tipitinas to hear exceptional blues, jazz and big brass bands. The club opened in 1977, and it’s named after a song by the famed musician Professor Longhair.

In Baton Rouge, you can visit the Varsity Theater to see touring acts from around the country. The club initially opened in 1937 but went through several genre and management changes until it exclusively showed live music in 1991.

You'll find

Neverending Entertainment

When you settle in Louisiana, you’ll never be looking for something to occupy your time. The state hosts more festivals and events than practically any other state. Joyful parades are a frequent occurrence even when it’s not a holiday season. Events like Mardi Gras have the entire population in the streets celebrating all day and night.

You’re probably anxious to start your new life in Louisiana, and you can rely on White Glove Moving to handle your move safely and efficiently so you can concentrate on what awaits you in your new state.
