Louisiana Bucket List ~ Crossroads Region

This is a very short installment of the Louisiana Bucket List series. We spent a night in this region in Natchitoches, which seemed like a quaint little town to visit if we had had longer to spend in the area.


  • Cane River Creole National Historic Park: This was the one thing we visited while in the area in order to get a stamp for our National Park Passport. When we visited, the site was not staffed, but it was neat to walk around the old plantation and get pictures.


  • Fort Jesup State Historic Site: This was built to protect the border with New Spain and restore order in the neutral area.


  • Fort St. Jean Baptiste State Historic Site: Experience what life was like as a French Colonial in land that was on the edge of French and Spanish colonies.

All attractions found in the 2018 Louisiana Travel Guide.
