For anyone into exploring abandoned amusement parks, the old Six Flags in New Orleans is pretty awesome! Abandoned during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, wandering the old park is like roaming in a post-apocalyptic world. Incredibly eerie. It's supposed to be torn down to make way for a new shopping center, so sneak in soon to see it before it's gone. Be warned however, at times there are security guards barring entrance, but there are ways in.
#Abandoned Labor Day shenanigans at Lincoln Beach. Lincoln Beach served New Orleans' African-American community during the time of segregation. You have to hop the levee/fence, cross the (active) train tracks, and then find one of the the trails that leads to the water. This is a view from the outside of part of the old arcade, a lingering reminder of what used to be. Unfortunately, the whole area is littered with trash as its not maintained by the city or the railroad locality. Locals use the place for dips in Lake Pontchartrain and a grilling and hanging with friends and family. #AfricanAmericanHistory #OldNewOrleans #NewOrleans #NOLA #Louisiana #WateringHoles #DayTrips #roadtrip This park was flooded and closed down after Hurricane Katrina. The Cajun Encounters tour took me to the Honey Island Swamp where I saw my first up-close, wild alligator. Not just one, but a whole bunch! Not to mention the turtles and local birds that are a lot different from the birds I'm used to in the north.
Our tour guide, Bishop, was fantastic. He was funny, personal, and knew his stuff. He also managed to attract not just gators but wild pigs as well.
If I go back to New Orleans--no--WHEN I go back, I fully intend on going on this tour again.
