Things to Do During Your Weekend Getaway in Louisiana

Ever wondered why Louisiana is called a "Sportsman's Paradise?" Well, it offers endless opportunities for outdoor recreation, and for every desire and ability. Gardens, trails, waterways, and parks abound. Consider the following adventures for your weekend getaway in Louisiana.

  • 1. Explore the Jungle Gardens

    A tour of this garden takes you through a fantastic trail rich in plant diversity. Starting from the Buddha statue, walk through landmarks such as the Cleveland Oak, Survey Tree, and the palm gardens. Look out for birds such as pintails and little blue herons.

  • 2. Hatch a Baby Alligator

    If you visit between mid-August and early September, check out the Insta-Gator Ranch for some hands-on encounters with native alligators. Witness as a gator egg hatches while holding it in your palm. Buy leather belts, wallets, and other gator-sourced accessories as well.

  • 3. Collecting Shells

    The beautifully quiet stretches of undisturbed sand in southwest Louisiana make for good beachcombing. Enjoy peaceful walks as you collect seashells along areas like Cameron Parish's beaches.

  • 4. Bikes and Brews

    A bottle of your favorite drink offers the best accompaniment to a relaxing ride. Pedal down the Tammany Trace Bike Trail and stop by an array of local breweries. Some of these include Abita Brewing Company and Old Rail Brewing.

  • 5. Horseback Riding

    Saddle up and explore the extensive trail of woods in the Kisatchie National Forest. The park has numerous riding paths suitable for all experience levels. If you’re a beginner, the guides will offer you some basic training.

What to Pack for Your Weekend Getaway in Louisiana

What to Pack for Your Weekend Getaway in Louisiana

If you're planning for a trip to Louisiana, you'll need to prepare for its warmer, more humid temperatures, but don't worry. Here are some tips for packing the essentials.

  • 1. Light, Layered Clothing

    Casual attire in layers is best. You'll need to consider both rain and warmer temperatures. Light layers are the best bet in both situations.

  • 2. Appropriate Footwear

    Pack comfortable water shoes for aquatic excursions, walking shoes for strolling downtown, and sturdier boots for hiking.

  • 3. Sun and Insect Protection

    For daytime excursions, you'll need sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat. Also, bring some insect repellent for those tiny critters that thrive in Louisana's swamps and other wetlands.

  • 4. Camera

    Bring a good camera to snap those stunning moments on the water, in the woods, and with wildlife. A waterproof camera is a bonus. In addition, pack a power cord and portable charger for your camera, phone, and other devices.
