Caddo Lake

Caddo Lake is located just outside of Shreveport, right by the border of Louisaiana and Texas. Get a great look at the swamplands, go fishing, or take the boat around in this lake-centric destination. Canoeing, birding, and hiking are all popular activities for folks who book Louisiana lake cabins for rent.


Like the History Channel? Then you'll love Lafayette. The historic Louisiana town is home to great sites like the Cathedral of St John, the 19th Century Acadian Village, the 18th century Vermilionville, and the antebellum Alexandre Mouton House. There are also fun learning opportunites here at places like the Children's Museum of Acadiana and the Lafayette Science Museum.

For a little more fun and a little less education, take a break at Cypress Lake, work out at Red Lerille's Health & Raquet Club, or take the kiddos to Jump Zone.


There's a surprising amount of things to see and do in this small Louisiana town. The Louisiana Orphan Train Museum, the historical museum Le Vieux Village, and the French colonial Michel Prudhomme Home really put Opelousas on the map as a cultural hot spot in the state. There's also great French and creole food to enjoy here.


Slidell enjoys a lovely location right by two giant bays: Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Borgne. So fun in the water is definitely not off limits when you book one our lake houses in Louisiana. Besides hanging out at the lake, there's still lots to do, though. Go an exciting adventure on Dr. Wagner's Honey Island Swamp Tour, get in touch with nature with Pearl River Eco Tours, shop until you drop at Slidell Historic Antique District, hop on a fishing charter, or hit the green at Oak Harbor Golf Club. Slidell isn't too far from New Orleans, either, so you can squeeze in a day trip if you feel inclined.

New Orleans

Ah, New Orleans. Sandwiched between the Gulf and a few lakes, you'd think this Big City would just be another lake town. But it's much more special than that. New Orleans is home to some of America's most historic attractions, from the National WWII Museum to the St Louis Cathedral. And it has street after street of adventure - listen to jazz on Jackson Square, take a walk through New Olreans' oldest neighborhood, the French Quarter, shop for unique finds on Royal Street, or watch the ferries on Canal Street. There are plenty of fun attractions, and divine restaurants, to discover as you explore New Orleans - like the Audobon Zoo and Commander's Palace (great if you've got a craving for cajun). It's impossible to fit all of New Orleans into just one trip, so make sure to come back again. New Orleans, Louisiana vacation rentals make it easy and affordable to enjoy the neverending city.
