The “Little White Castle” or “Fisherman’s Castle” on Irish Bayou in New Orleans was constructed in 1981 for the World’s Fair. The castle is not occupied and is located on private property, but you can view from the street or water. Find it at 3262 Ridgeway Blvd. (The abandoned Jazzland theme park is nearby for an added hidden attraction.)

Liberty Lagoon

Liberty Lagoon is a waterpark in Baton Rouge. If you are traveling with your family, it is a perfect location for a lot of fun. You can enjoy a lazy river, a simple but fun-filled surfing simulator and several water slides. Guests can have fun for hours, and you can easily access the waterpark on Lobdell Avenue at number 111.


Briarwood was the home of Caroline Dormon. She was an author, world-renowned botanist and the very first woman who was employed in the U.S. in forestry. Her role in the preservation of the beautiful Kisatchie National Forest is edged in history, together with her work on other state parks. You can now visit her home, Briarwood, since after her 1971 death it was gifted to the public. During the months of March to May and September to November, the home is open for tours. Briarwood is located in Saline on Caroline Dorman Road.

Carmelite monks hand built the Rock Chapel in the year 1892. The chapel managed to survive, and you can now visit it for a glimpse of history. Just remember that the chapel is no longer open to the public. In order to get access, those interested have to get in touch with the tourist bureau of DeSoto Parish. The Rock Chapel is located in Carmel on Smithport Road.

Fairview Riverside State Park

Fairview-Riverside State Park is often not on the list of tourists because of its small size—the park is under 100 acres. It was built on the Tchefuncte River and gives you access to countless beautiful views and cool, crystal river waters. You can also visit Otis House, which is recognized by the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Fairview-Riverside is located in Madisonville on Fairview Drive.

Holly Beach

Holly Beach is locally referred to as the Cajun Rivera. It was destroyed when it was hit by Hurricane Rita in 2005 but has been coming back strong. You want to consider visiting if you are interested in sea shelling, fishing and crabbing. Those who do not want to stay in the cabins can simply pitch their tents on the beach.
