The Un-Official Tourist Guide to Louisiana!

Central Louisiana

Tourist Attractions

Louisiana State Parks
Culture, Recreation & Tourism Department for Louisiana.  This site is actually really good.

Kent Plantation
In Alexandria

Melrose Plantation
Folk artist, Clementine Hunter's "home;" also the home of the  "African House."  There are a lot of Hunter's primitive paintings on display. We visited the house in the summer of 1999.  The tour gui
des were not good.  Visitors walk in the rooms (they are not roped off).  A boring 20 minute video with awful sound is shown.  The tour guide acknowledged the sound was bad and her only solution was to turn the window a/c off; which was not a good alternative since it was a very hot Louisiana summer day.  Located in beautiful central Louisiana, almost 4 hours from the UCM.  If you are in the area, you may look into the Bayou Pierre Alligator Farm -- it's a real Louisiana tourist attraction.

Bayou Pierre Alligator Farm
A great roadside attraction near Natchitoches, Louisiana.  Unlike other alligator farms, this place has a good layout, it's clean,  and loads of fun.  Highly recommended.  Bring a camera.  This site also has informative info about gators.

Kisatchie National Forest
Located in central and northern Louisiana, it is 602,308 acres with about 27 developed campgrounds.

Hodges Gardens
These gardens in Many, Louisiana, are the largest privately owned horticultural park and wildlife refuge in the U.S.A.
