Louisiana Has A Lost Island Town That Most People Don’t Know About

Fun fact: Louisiana was once home to a luxury resort island. Few people know this little tidbit of history, but during the 1800s, visitors flocked to this island to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life to enjoy the sandy oasis for a weekend or two. These days, you’d have to travel out to Florida to find the same type of experience, but over 150 years ago, it was just a short boat ride down to the Gulf.
