The Holcombe house buzzes with activity, whether it be day to day work and school activities, or special events while hosting local or out of town guests. Many visitors have honored us with their presence, from as close away as down the street, to as far away as Eastern Europe.

As unofficial tour guides, we show our friends the sites and let them hear the sounds of Louisiana. Favorite destinations include the Kent House, River Oaks Art Center, the Alexandria Museum of Art, Cane River Heritage Area with Kate Chopinís home, Melrose Plantation and History Natchitoches. Further off, we often visit Marksville, Lafayette, and wonderful New Orleans with its museums, mansions and music.

Our annual calender usually includes, besides a series of visitors, such events as the Czech Heritage Festival, Melrose Arts Festival, Natchitoches Folklife Festival, Mardi Gras, the Jazz and Heritage Festival and countless others. Louisiana knows how to party. Laissez les bons temps roulez, as the locals say
