TRIPS

The New Orleans area is well known for the number of events and attractions that take place throughout the year. For those looking for a quick weekend getaway or a fun, relaxing day trip, excursion or family activity, the region is situated near top destinations.

During the spring and summer months, residents frequent nearby beach communities along the Alabama, Mississippi and Florida coasts, which serve as popular destinations due to scenic ocean views, affordable condominiums available for rent year-round and plenty of shopping and dining options. Closer to home, Louisiana’s picturesque state parks offer visitors access to a number of quaint cabins and pristine trails and waterways, providing a serene retreat for families to enjoy all that Louisiana's outdoors have to offer.

For a quick trip filled with high-energy fun, many residents head to Baton Rouge, Louisiana’s capital city located just an hour northwest of New Orleans. Football games at Louisiana State University’s Tiger Stadium attract hundreds of thousands of fans to a full day of tailgating under LSU’s stately oaks and an exciting game of college football. Bayou Country Superfest is another popular attraction in Baton Rouge, especially among country music lovers. This four-day, annual concert series brings in some of the top names in country music.
