The Quiet Fishing Town Near New Orleans That Seems Frozen In Time

Grand Isle was founded in 1781, and has been a vibrant community ever since. From fishing to tourism, there is truly something for everyone in this quaint fishing town near New Orleans, and it is no surprise that it has kept its charm through the years.

Of course being a gulf barrier island, Grand Isle has seen some truly destructive storms, and is now losing land due to sea level rise. It is going to be a difficult time for the people of Grand Isle moving forward, so it is a great time to pay the island a visit and show this beautiful little town some love!
