Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, Louisiana

There are six separate sites outside New Orleans that make up Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. The one we went to had a great boardwalk through the swamp. There was almost no none there, and we spotted a cute baby gator sunning himself on the path. It was hot and steamy, but well worth the heat to enjoy the gorgeous swamp.
