The Mandalay Nature Trail Near New Orleans Is A Brief But Beautiful Walk Through The Wetlands

One of the many perks to living in New Orleans is that we’ve got the best of both worlds: the joys of city life while still close enough to Louisiana’s iconic swamps and wetlands. The next time you want to trade the city views for a more natural landscape, hop in the car and head on down to Houma where you’ll find the Mandalay Nature Trail, one of the most beautiful trails near New Orleans.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
