Louisiana has a plethora of destinations that are family friendly, and in the summer time, that’s especially important to keep the sanity of those around little ones that may be easily bored. Our friends at Louisiana Travel say get out of your routine, and head to places like Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, New Orleans, which kids of all ages will adore! How about Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center, Baton Rouge, or Bayou Pierre Alligator Park, Natchitoches? And of course, no summer time trip is complete without a visit to the world famous Audubon Zoo in New Orleans. Some of my favorites are below, but be sure to check out some other kid friendly places, and plan your road trip across our beautiful state today!
