At the southern end of Highway 1, the seven magical miles of Grand Isle hold all the wonders that
The diverse region of Jefferson allows you the ability to explore nature yet remain close enough to the action of New Orleans. You can fish within minutes of your hotel. Or, cast from a charter boat off the bayous of Jean Lafitte or the coast of Grand Isle, home of the Annual International Tarpon Rodeo. Hunt and hike the hidden wetlands of the Barataria Preserve of Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve.
Jefferson Parish is a sportsman's paradise. Whether it's a quiet getaway fishing, an adventurous deep water excursion, or hiking the hidden wetlands, go wild in Jefferson Parish!
Adventure awaits in the 580-acre Bayou Segnette State Park, a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city located just minutes away from New Orleans. Nestled on the banks of beautiful Bayou Segnette, the park's extensive grounds comprise the most popular state park in Louisiana. Spend the day swimming and splashing in the wave pool. Then, spend the night along the banks of Bayou Segnette in their new floating cabins.
Or, perhaps you prefer a night beneath the stars tent camping on the beach at Grand Isle State Park. Bring your RV for a less rustic experience. While there, head over to Elmer's Island beach and see the largest single coastal ecosystem restoration in CPRA history which includes miles of gorgeous white sand beach! Hiking and nature trails abound throughout the parks and are waiting to be explored.
