LOUISIANA HOLDS so much beauty: bald cypress moss and dense forests (did you know that Louisiana is one of the most humid states in the US?), abundant bayous, hidden lakes, and white pelicans. Here are my favorite state parks in Louisiana.
Fontainebleau State Park
This plantation, a large sugar mill in 1829, is located near Mandeville and has become a popular location for bird watching and kayaking. An old railway was converted into the 27-mile-long Tammany trail, for hiking and biking. New waterfront cabins have a perfect view of the sunset. Swamp tours are offered in nearby bayous.
