“While the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road is a destination unto itself, research shows that people are seeking authentic experiences when they travel. Much of what visitors see and experience along the trail, they cannot fully understand without a comprehensive orientation such as the exhibits offered at Adventure Point. The interactive displays are meant to be memorable, entertaining and educational, and we are thrilled to have an opportunity like this in our area so that others can embrace our unique culture and landscape before experiencing it for themselves.”
Exhibits at Creole Nature Trail Adventure Point
Photos don’t do this place justice as each exhibit at Creole Nature Trail Adventure Point is designed to fully immerse visitors in the culture of Southwest Louisiana. Dress in hunting gear. Sniff the spices used in Creole cuisine. Play the washboard — essential to the zydeco sound. Then, head out on the trail with the interactive app to explore the region and see it all again ~ in its real life setting!
The “trail” winds through the exhibits, telling Southwest Louisiana’s story.
Generations of history combine to create this region’s unique flavors. Visitors to Creole Nature Trail at Adventure Point learn what goes into Jambalaya.
See the critters and plants of the marshland on display. This is the one place in Louisiana where it’s okay to be a raccoon ~ that gator’s already “stuffed.”
Ever since my first visit to Southwest Louisiana, I have appreciated the locals’ dedication to fun! I’m not at all surprised that the people here are among the happiest in the United States. Whether celebrating at a festival or just cooking jambalaya at grandma’s house, relationships and heritage are most important.
