Ocean Ave in the Garden State has everything from horse-racing events to homemade Italian ices for you to enjoy!

The number one attraction here is the Telluride Blues & Brews festival for all of those that love some great live music and a drink in one hand. In the winter, you can skiers trek through the snow and you’ll also get a beautiful sight of the Rocky Mountains in the middle of the street.
5. Main Street in New Iberia (Washington)
If you’ve visited The Shadows, then you have seen Marie Adrien Persac’s gouache paintings of the home. Born in France, Persac settled in Louisiana after meeting his wife who resided with her parents in the Manchac area. He mostly lived and worked in New Orleans, labeling himself an #engineer and #architect who also #draws and #paints. Persac is known for his many #paintings documenting the spirit of Louisiana’s most fruitful #plantations, from the #Teche to #Terrebonne. #art #onlyiberia #onlylouisiana #trustsites
