What are the best outdoor adventures in Louisiana?
Even though our highest summit is just 535 feet above the sea, the hike up Driskill Mountain is one of the best outdoor adventures you can enjoy in the Pelican State. Some other fun outdoor activities include flyboarding, cycling the Tammany Trace through five different cities, and the exciting swamp tours that market to tourists, but entertain locals even more.
Does Louisiana have any natural wonders?
Kisatchie National Forest is one beautiful spot that showcases some of the unexpected woodland beauty of Louisiana. Along our barrier islands, Breton Wildlife Refuge shows off more than 23 species of bird, including our state bird, the Brown Pelican. The remarkable and historic Seven Sisters Oak is the largest southern live oak in the country, and it’s estimated to be over 1,500 years old. Of course, the wetland and swamps that make our state so notable are among the most stunning of Louisiana’s natural wonders, and the Atchafalaya River Basin is the largest wetland and swamp in the United States.
