The Bayou State – home to a collection of low swamplands, barrier islands, and lush marshes – easily features some of the most iconic scenery in the United States. And with seven National Park sites, there’s no shortage of ways to experience the unique beauty of the Creole State.

More than just scenery, however, Louisiana’s vast history, dating back to European settlements in the 16 and 17th centuries, is proudly on display. In fact, sites like the Cane River National Heritage Area and the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park preserve some the state's great historical landmarks.

Whether it's Jean Lafitte or Poverty Point – no matter which park you choose – you’ll undoubtedly find beauty, culture, and history unlike any other.
