As per Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser, who us the owner of the office which runs the Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, expressed that the controversy over confederate monuments in New Orleans could be a major issue that could keep foreign tourists away.
However, Nungesser was quite apprehensive of a weeklong swing through more than a dozen cities that advertizes the key attractions of different areas in Louisiana.
This is perhaps the best time for the tour to happen. The tourism industry is recoiling through the state, as said by Nungesser and local tourism officials are trying their best so that “North Shore story” gets out, and attract visitors across the globe. To quote Shannon Bordelon, ‘Lebanon last week we had somebody from Scotland come in.’ Along with her husband Jeff, they have grown their business named Bayou Adventure in Lacombe, into a flourishing operation, attracting people worldwide.
Bayou Adventure is well-known as a combination convenience store. Additionally, it’s a fishing supply outlet as well that offers kayaks for people who want to see the local bayous luring visitors from everywhere. To quote Bordelon, ‘It counts for more than half the people that come into Bayou Adventure, coming not just from outside of Lacombe or St. Tammany Parish. They are coming from around the world.’
