In LA, you could visit the Tabasco factory on Avery Island. It's just south of Lafayette off I-49. If you want REAL cajun cooking, just west of Lafayette on I-10 is a small town called Henderson. Skip the stuff along the access rd and go to Pat's or at night Robin's (Row-ban's), great stuff. On the west bank of the Mississippi about 15 mi S of Baton Rouge is Nottoway, the largest Antebellum home still in existence. Go visit Mike the tiger at LSU. ;-) Or visit the state capital in B.R. and see the holes in the wall where Huey P Long got gunned down. :shock:any suggestions on local attractions would be appreciated. i've searched the internet for interesting places to visit, but if you are from these areas please let me know if there's a good spot worth stopping by. i'm up for whatever... i plan on taking easy the entire trip and enjoying myself and sights i see!
i'll do my best to take lots of pics.
total miles driven should be around 2791.
If you like history, from Gulf Shores you can go West to the old Fort at the tip of Mobile Bay called Fort Morgan. I used to know a couple of great hole in the wall bars down there, but I have no idea if this wacky ******* place on the back bay called the keg survived all the hurricanes. It's the ultimate ******* bar, front looks like a gigantic beer keg. :lol:
