Is it occupied? I've heard about it since I was a kid but I've never actually been.

The chalmette battlefield is pretty cool. For those who don't know its where Andrew Jackson kicked arse in the battle of new orleans.


I admit I knew jack shite about that battle until 2007 when I went to the BR Museum downtown. The ex was all rushing me and shite while I read every damned word of that history lesson.

Laurel Valley Plantation down around Thibodaux, LA. They still have about 60 slave cabins standing. Check out the little general store that is still open with a lot of period pieces on display.

Its Fort St Philip. Thats the one Perez had fixed up as a jail when MLK said he was gonna march in Plaquemines Parish.Its across from Fort Jackson and twice as big. We hunt ducks behind it. If you are into snakes, go here in the summer.

re: Little known places in S. Louisiana
There is a secret Buddhist temple in Gonzales, LA (although I've never found it) as well as an Eastern tea garden and pagoda at Houma's House.

I don't think it's really a secret to people who live there, but The Fly is a park on the river side of the levee in New Orleans behind the Audubon Zoo.

Holly Beach in Cameron Parish is actually a real beach with legit sand and everything! There's no buildings save mobile homes sense Rita annihilated Cameron back in 2005, but it's basically the only real beach in Louisiana.

The Plantation where they filmed the horror movie "The Skeleton Key" is a private residence just down the road from Oak Alley Plantation.

Port Hudson north of Baton Rouge has a Civil War battlefield and puts on an annual reenactment in the spring.

NOLA Brewery offers tours and frequently holds parties with live bands and lots and lots of free beer on tap.
