Louisiana has an abundance of waterways. From the Red River down to the Atchafalaya River Basin, the Bayou State is peppered with waterways of all shapes and sizes. Growing up in Louisiana, you’ve probably spent much of your life on the water. We learn to fish, crab, kayak, and boat from an early age, and we’re always looking for that next river or lake to explore. Lake Pontchartrain is the largest lake in Louisiana, and it’s certainly worth a road trip.
