The Most-Photographed Swamp In The Country Is Right Here In Louisiana

Those of us lucky enough to call Louisiana home are well aware that our state is just overflowing with natural beauty. From the Kisatchie to Cocodrie, Louisiana is a nature lover’s paradise, offering everything from rolling hills to sleepy bayous. One particular spot stands out from the rest for its awe-inspiring beauty and attracts visitors from all over the world, and we are lucky enough to have it right in our own backyard. You’ve driven over it, you’ve seen countless photos of it, but how much do you really know about the Atchafalaya River Swamp? Let’s check it out.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
