The Hidden Beaches Road Trip That Will Show You Louisiana Like Never Before
Even though we are a coastal state, we sadly don’t get the same benefit of the Gulf as say, Florida does. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have beaches! You just may not know where to look for them. We’ve found some of the best hidden beaches that you’ll love to sink your toes into. This epic road trip will take you about 13 hours and all over the state, so feel free to customize your route to fit your needs.
