Beyond the interstate . . . beyond the excitement of Louisiana's cities . . . lies a world of natural beauty and abundance whose people preserve the very heart of Louisiana's cultures. This is a land that beckons to everyone with a sense of adventure. This is Louisiana's Outback' a place where prairie melts into marsh, where the Gulf of Mexico laps against natural sand beaches, where rare oak cheniers are shaped by salty winds. Here, birds, butterflies and waterfowl flock in the millions-as they have for thousands of years-lured from afar by the unbroken promise of much needed rest and plentiful food. Named "one of five fantastic family trips" in April 2008's Scholastic Parent & Child magazine, the Creole Nature Trail is lauded as the coolest way to get nose to snout with an alligator. For top-notch fishing, birding, shelling, crabbing, boating, and nature photography, the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road is your back road to adventure.
