Tourism is a number one industry in Louisiana. Last year, the state set a record for this industry. Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne and LSU head football coach Les Miles marked the occasion with a special lunch.
Miles spoke about what attracts people to the Bayou State.
More than a million people visited Louisiana last year, a four percent increase. Visitor spending was more than 10 billion dollars.
