7 Of The Most Magical Getaways You Can Take In Louisiana
Louisiana is filled with tons of exciting places for you to get away from it all. With the upcoming extended weekend, consider heading out to one of these magical getaways so you can fall in love with Louisiana all over again.
1. Relax in a houseboat.
Often overlooked, houseboats are a fantastic option when you’re looking to get away from it all. You’ll be surrounded by some of Louisiana’s most beautiful landscapes, and you can sit back and listen to the symphony of sounds the swamps create as they come alive in the evenings.

2. Take a beachside vacation.
Head over to Holly Beach where you can sink your toes in the sand without a care in the world. You’ll stay in a beautiful beach house overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, and you can spend your days searching for seashells and your evenings listening to the waves crashing on the shore. The Pickled Pelican beach house is located at 2029 Brant St., Holly Beach, Louisiana 70631.
3. Rent a cabin.
With more than 20 state parks in Louisiana, you’re never too far away from one. Spending some time relaxing at a cabin is a great way to get away from it all and yet still be close to home. Learn more about state park cabins in our previous article
4. Visit Natchitoches.
Come explore Louisiana’s oldest town and enjoy the many restaurants, boutiques, and stores in this historic little town. There are dozens of bed and breakfasts you can stay at, but we’d recommend Bird’s Nest on the Cane, which has absolutely lovely views of the Cane River. Find them at 1015 Parkway Dr., Natchitoches, Louisiana 71457.
5. Head down to Grand Isle.
For those looking to spend their time fishing, head down to the tip of the boot. Louisiana’s only inhabited barrier island is a fisherman’s paradise, and Grand Isle State Park has some wonderful trails to explore. You can sleep right on the beach, so bring a tent and have some fun!
6. Check out Indian Creek Recreation Area.
Indian Creek Recreation Area is located in Rapides Parish and is a wonderful option for anyone looking to spend some time outdoors. They have both RV hookups and primitive campsites around the lake, plus a few trails you’re sure to love. Learn more about Indian Creek Recreation area

Your inner child will love spending a weekend up in a treehouse. Located on Pine Island, this cozy little treehouse will make you feel like a kid again. You’ll have access to Cross Lake, where you can go kayaking and fishing, and then maybe even catch your own dinner and cook it on the grill. Learn more about this unique treehouse
