Spend A Weekend Exploring Poverty Point, The Oldest Attraction In Louisiana

Up in the northeast corner of Louisiana lies one of the most fascinating historical attractions in the entire state, and many don’t even know it exists. Once a thriving community, Poverty Point is an incredible mystery that historians and archaeologists are still trying to piece together. You could easily spend an entire day walking the grounds and observing all of the artifacts that have been collected, but why rush? This is one of those attractions that you’ll want to take your time, so we’ve paired up the perfect weekend with Poverty Point and a nearby state park by the same name so that both history and nature lovers can have a relaxing getaway.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.
