Wheelchair friendly vacations along Louisiana’s Coast

While everyone loves the outdoors, not everyone is physically able to enjoy it in the same way.  So while some may like adventure biking or offshore fishing, others may prefer a quiet nature walk or a great spot to watch the sun set.

Louisiana is proud of the many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors for those in wheelchairs or who don’t get around as well as they used to.  Below is a partial list of wheel chair and walker friendly parks and businesses you may want to check out:
