Stray Boots is an interactive tour that sets friends and family members loose on an exhilarating, knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by clues, trivia, and riddles. They operate in cities across the country, dividing them into special themed tours that contain the historical sites, local areas of interest, or eccentric child mayors unique to each city. During the explorations, clues point the way to cultural hot spots, which Stray Boots communicates via their official mobile app. At least one player on the team will need an iPhone or Android phone to receive clues, and none of the self-guided tours require previous knowledge of the city. Adventurers play at their own pace—most tours take two to three hours to finish—which allows them to spend more time learning about the city and photographing vibrant fire hydrants for aquacentric scrapbooks.

Though Wow Cafe & Wingery has now found a foothold in more than 60 locations throughout the U.S., the chain still offers the same tasty soul food and wings as it did when it was founded by a trio of Louisianan brothers in 2001. The friendly sports pub still broadcasts the day’s games on various televisions, allowing guests to follow multiple sports or Jenga tournaments as they lick one of 17 delectable sauces from their fingers. In addition to these finger-food staples, guests can devour fajitas, burgers resting between slices of texas toast, and classic New Orleans dishes such as gumbo, catfish, and red beans. Spice-covered tongues cool off with signature drinks such as an italian mango bellini or Louisiana's Abita beer.

Formed in 1989, the Louisiana Tour Company started out by organizing Swamp tours narrated by knowledgeable boat captains. Today, the company has grown to offer other excursions such as city Ghost tours on foot, visits to plantations in a van, and Airboat tours of swamp and marshland on the backs of indigenous amphibians. Three-hour New Orleans City and Post-Katrina tours invite sightseers to load up into a minibus to visit city landmarks and areas ravaged by Hurricane Katrina.

If you tilt your head and squint, the murky waters of the Honey Island Swamp almost look like a red carpet. Ok, that might not be entirely true, but thanks to the guides at the locally owned and operated Cajun Encounters, Hollywood stars and famous musicians have toured one of Louisiana's only remaining preserved wetlands. Their covered and uncovered swamp tour boats have welcomed the likes of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Usher, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Forest Whitaker.

Kelly Ripa even gave the tour a glowing review and a feature on Live! with Regis & Kelly, but celebrity status and a personal assistant who carries you over puddles are hardly required for getting up-close looks at alligators, wild boars, bald eagles, and other swamp animals.

As an eco-friendly tour company, Cajun Encounters extends its adventures beyond the wetlands. With 16 years of experience, its team members provide round-trip pick up service via mini busses decked out in the ultimate comforts. Guides lead guests on tours of the city, including the historic French Quarter and graves at local cemeteries. Or they might travel back in time, visiting two plantations straight out of the 1800s.
