Why lie, I am so jealous of all of my friends who are making their way to Gulf Shores and to Florida's 30A right now. I am always thinking of ways to get my taste of summer all while staying in Louisiana. Have you seen gas prices lately? Although this summer may be one for the books, I am not trying to go broke just trying to fill up my gas tank.

Turns out, Louisiana has a hidden gem that many Louisianians who love seashells have kept a secret. Leave it to me to find out all about Rutherford Beach. I stumbled upon a post on Instagram and now I'm determined to visit this hidden beach.

Who cares that we don't have those beautiful white sandy beaches here in Louisiana, we have something even better especially if you love collecting seashells by the seashore. Rutherford Beach is a hidden little beach about 20 miles away from Holly Beach. It's along the Louisiana coast and locals love it. The good news is that it's only 4 hours away from us in Shreveport-Bossier.
