The Crazy Tourist is a website that covers travel destinations all around the world, and is a great resource for places and things that might not be top of mind if you are researching travel spots. I like to call them 'off the beaten path', or 'hidden gems'. So, I was very interested when I saw a list of the 19 most beautiful places to visit in Louisiana on their site. And FYI, I think ALL of our state is beautiful and unique! Check out the list below, and let me know if there are any that you would like to add.
