Jean Lafitte National Historical Park | Life in the Bayou of Louisiana
Jean Lafitte National Historical Park is composed of six sites that are scattered across southern Louisiana. Each site is unique in its focus, and they all reflect the unique culture of this area in the Mississippi bayou. This video will show our time at one of those sites called the Barataria Preserve (just 17 miles from New Orleans).
Louisiana's Swamp- Jean Lafitte National Barataria Preserve
New Orleans is a city surrounded by swamps, basically making it an island. It’s easy to see why the wetlands are shrouded in just as much mystery and tales as they are in Spanish moss and cypress trees. They are shadowed, otherworldly and breathtakingly beautiful.
Jean Lafitte National Park refers to six different sites scattered across south Louisiana including a battlefield and a visitor’s center in the French Quarter.
This video is about the Barataria Preserve, which is usually what people are referring to when they talk about Jean Lafitte Park.
The swamps have been home to pirates and slaves fleeing towards freedom, as well as alligators, birds, and insects of every kind. The bayous surrounding New Orleans added to the magic of the city and should not be missed!
By the way, the park is full of larger wildlife, and you may inadvertently find yourself a lot closer to them than you would on a swamp tour too! It's also free!
