    Once you get through hurricane season, Louisiana has it all going on. Low taxes, good medical care, a low cost of living -- not to mention jazz and beignets. Crime? Well, that depends on where you settle in the state. New Orleans has a fairly high crime rate, scoring in the bottom 11% of America's cities. But the crime rate is somewhat better in other parts of the state, though still higher than the national average.
