3 Places to Visit on a New Orleans Road Trip
New Orleans consistently ranks toward the top of the list of American travel destinations, but have you ever considered branching out from your typical visit to The Big Easy and visiting some new places in Louisiana? Upon your arrival at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) pick up your MSY car rental and hit the road on an epic road trip looping from New Orleans to Baton Rouge, and back again.
From the New Orleans Airport head just less than an hour west to find the beautiful Houmas House. This sprawling plantation gives visitors the opportunity to step back in time and imagine what life was like as an 1800s Sugar Baron.
Houmas House offers several options to keep you entertained, from leisurely tours of the home and lovely gardens, to delicious Southern cuisine and a refreshing mint julep at one of the two on-site restaurants. Once you’ve finished exploring the grounds, you can even stay in one of the quaint cottages on the plantation to get some rest and complete your trip back in time.
Looking more like a gothic castle nestled comfortably into the heart of Baton Rouge, Louisiana’s Old State Capitol is definitely a sight to see. Standing tall through war, fire, and political scandal, this National Historic Landmark is home to an interactive museum that tells the story of the area.
Spend the afternoon wandering through the museum and learn all about the political history of Louisiana told through documents, artifacts, and state-of-the-art exhibits. Want to be a part of something completely unique? See the Ghost of the Castle show for an experience you’ll never forget.
What’s a trip to Louisiana without a visit to a swamp? At the Joyce Wildlife Swampwalk located within the Joyce Wildlife Management Area, a walk around the boardwalk gives visitors the chance to see the interior portions of the swamp and get a better view of local wildlife. On a jaunt around the Swampwalk, you might see alligators, osprey, and even bald eagles.
