St. Bernard Parish, La.
As its tagline proclaims, Louisiana's St. Bernard
Parish it the place "Where Reel Adventure Begins."
While the area is just a short distance from the
attractions of downtown New Orleans, it offers some
of the best spots for catching redfish and speckled
trout. Bountiful waterways such as Lake Borne, the
Mississippi River and Breton Sound make this a
paradise for fishing, hunting or birdwatching, includ-
ing several stops on the America's Wetland Birding
Trail. For other types of adventure, history buffs can
visit the spot where the nation was defended against
the British during the Battle of New Orleans, the
National Historical Park Chalmette Battlefield. Take
a drive along the San Bernardo Scenic Byway to see
historic homes and other historic sites dating back to
the early 1800's. Or. visit fishing villages and feast on
abundant Gulf of Mexico seafood.
