The Office of Louisiana Lt. Governor Mitch Landrieu and Encore Louisiana has named Sci-Port: Louisiana's Science Center one of the Top 50 places and programs that make life in Louisiana unique and fulfilling for people ages 50 and above.

From October 1 through November 15, over 2,700 votes were cast by people in the 50-plus age group and Sci-Port is one of six state locations to make the category Best Places to Visit with the Kids/Grandkids.

"The Top 50 for 50+ celebrates the best that Louisiana has to offer," said Lt. Governor Landrieu, who oversees Encore Louisiana. "As our lives get longer and healthier, our years at 50 and beyond truly can be our best. Individuals age 50 and above also bring great economic benefit to Louisiana."

The goal of Encore Louisiana is to entice people 50 and above to move to or stay in Louisiana. More information is available at and in the new publication Encore Louisiana-The Official Guide to Louisiana Living for Boomers & Beyond.
