What Time is It in Louisiana?

Louisiana has its own relaxed pace. Think of New Orleans, also known as the Big Easy; everything moves about in its own time. However, if you need to know the real time, it helps to first know where you are now. Louisiana is part of the U.S. Central Standard Time Zone (CST). If you live on the east coast and are part of the Eastern Standard Time Zone (EST), like New York, a city like New Orleans, would be one hour behind you.
