A Break on the Basin

Did you know Louisiana has more water resources than any other state? The lakes, waterways, and rivers have played a vital role in shaping Louisiana’s land and life. Join us for a waterfront excursion as we explore the areas around Lake Maurepas and Lake Pontchartrain, two lakes that connect the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico. Feast on fresh, local cuisine, trek through the scenic swamps of south Louisiana, and come face to face with an alligator. Stroll through charming waterfront cities with picturesque backdrops and engage in local traditions. Your Louisiana wanderlust is just beginning. 

*All pre-FAM’s require light to moderate walking and climbing a flight of stairs.
