Last year I visited the six locations that make up the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve for an assignment with AAA Southern Traveler. Had a blast. I learned things I didn’t know about Cajun culture and history (I think there’s a book in there some where).
Yet the six locations throughout southern Louisiana are actually quite different. In addition to Cajun culture, it’s about battlefields, swamps, and yes, New Orleans. All the amazing things that make up Louisiana.
For more about Jean Lafitte NHP, you’ll find the article here.
My favorites of the pictures I took can be found in AAA Southern Traveler, but here are some more of plantation house at the Chalmette Battlefield and the Barataria Preserve.
