Louisiana Featured Twice on Fairy Tale Places List
Very few locations in the United States were featured on this list, but Louisiana nabbed two spots.
How beautiful is the Earth? Over the weekend we were reminded of just how stunning our home is and were encouraged to take care of it on Earth Day. In addition to the gorgeous natural qualities, there are some pretty incredible structures that look like there are straight out of a fairy tale.
Recently The Weather Channel featured 100 of these places on their website.
On the list are castles, mountains, caves, creeks, beaches, and more. These are breathtaking places all across the globe, but they didn't leave out the US. Although they only found a handful of "fairy tale-esque" places in this great nation of ours, Louisiana took two of those spots.
Louisiana's Cypress Island was number 71 on the list. This Preserve is about 9,500 acres of bottomland hardwood forest and cypress-tupelo swamp, according to the Nature Conservancy. Louisiana's Oak Alley Plantation was also listed at number 84. Once an old sugarcane plantation, now the perfect place to getaway for a weekend, host a wedding or even just take a tour. It's southern elegance at its finest.
