Louisiana natives treasure a day at the beach on the barrier island known as Grand Isle, just a short drive from the city. Known for its great fishing spots and even deep-sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, at the Grand Isle State Park you can camp or just spend the day picnicking. This tiny sea-side town hosts the Cajun Rodeo, which draws 15 times its normal population annually. Besides fishing, Grand Isle is also known for its birding trails which consists of nearly 60 acres of marsh and Chenier forest habitat and the hosting of The Grand Isle Migratory Bird Festival – an annual three-day event.
