Brenda Lafleur, Creole Nature Trail

This is National Travel and Tourism Week and what better place to be a tourist than in your own state? Louisiana has a lot to offer in the line of interesting places and people. As a matter of fact the Creole Nature Trail has been nominated for USA Today and Rand McNally‘s “Best of the Road” as a part of their search for the Best Small Towns in America.

There are 28 points of interest on the Creole Nature Trail, beginning in Lake Charles Louisiana, that have been nominated as “best places.”

I’ve only been to a one of the “best places,” Lake Charles, and that means I have some work to do. Here is a full list of the best points of interest nominated:
