My husband and I LOVE national parks- this wonderful preserve is a mere 20 minute drive from New Orleans! Boardwalk paths meander through the swamp- if you've never BEEN to a swamp, it's a glorious ecosystem. Green, lush, heavy and thick with humidity- these are positives! Wonderful place to behold. We saw alligators- most were smallish but one was a big boy meandering down the stream. Surprised we didn't see more birds- just saw two. But we'd come back at another time of day to try again. Bring water and wear bug spray! Nice side trip that's so closeby.
