What To Do In Westwego

May 31, 2019

Do the floating homes move?

While the floating cabins in Bayou Segnette State Park do not move locations, you may feel some movement from the swells of the water, depending on how windy/rough the waters are at any given time of day.

How much does it cost to rent a houseboat?

The cabins at Bayou Segnette State Park are $150/night during the week, and $175/night Friday-Saturday. Each cabin can accommodate up to eight people.

What do I need to bring to spend the night on a houseboat?

Treat an overnight stay on a houseboat much like you would an overnight stay in a vacation rental. Most locations will provide the basics like linens, towels, and kitchenware, so you would just need to bring any food you plan to cook during your stay. Of course, it’s always a good idea to call the establishment ahead of time to confirm.
