This week I’m virtually road-tripping around the South with a whole bunch of great bloggers for The Great Southern Road Trip. We will be linking up all sorts of fun southern-inspired posts for y’all to enjoy, sip and savor.
So, grab your cocktail of choice and let me take you on a tour of my favorite beach town, Grand Isle, LA.
Grand Isle is 7 miles of sun, fun, and sand. Louisiana's only inhabited barrier island, Grand Isle is best know as a fisherman's paradise. Surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and Barataria Bay, Grand Isle is a habitat for crabs, shrimp, and many species of fish.
I have been going to Grand Isle since I was born. Though it does not possess the crystal blue water and white sands of Florida, Grand Isle holds a special place in my heart. The people and the food are outstanding.
