Here Are The 7 Best Places Around New Orleans To Visit On A Long Weekend

Soon, we will be in the throws of Carnival Season (pun intended), where there will be parades just about every weekend to keep us occupied. We’ve got a long weekend coming up, and it’s just the ticket to get out of the city for a few days and explore a different part of the state. The following destinations are all within a two hour drive, and make for a perfect long weekend with the family.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
