Louisiana is a great state to live in, and to visit, but when it comes to vacationing sometimes it seems like it’s hard to find anything new. Today we are going to explore options that are close (by close I mean a 200 mile radius) to New Orleans.
1.) The Beach – Of Course the beach instantly comes to mind when planning any vacation especially Spring Break, since it’s our first chance at those warm weather activities. So, the closest most budget conscious beach vacation is nearby in Mississippi. Visit vbro.com for some great deals from $59 a night.
2.) The Mountains – Here in Southern Louisiana mountains may seem a long way away, but a short drive up the road to Jackson, Mississippi can bring you into that mountain environment. With activities including Hiking, Canoeing, Fishing, and More your vacation is sure to be fun. Visit the city of Jackson website for more activities in the area.
3.) Local Attractions – If you can’t take off for Spring Break that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the fun. Visit local attractions; go on a swamp tour, visit a local state park, go to the zoo, go fishing. Whatever it may be take the time to have a little fun with the family. Visit the Louisiana tourism website for other ideas.
Save money by staying close to home, and saving airfare, but still have fun. By choosing one of these options or getting creative with some of your own, you can create a memorable experience for the family.
