Ride the Streetcars (Trolleys)

One pleasant and inexpensive activity is a ride on the world famous New Orleans Streetcars. Introduced in the 19th century as a means of public transportation, the streetcars, although much improved, still serve the same purpose. They are used by residents every day, and have become quite an attraction for visitors to the city. The St. Charles Avenue Streetcars route begins at the intersection of Carrolton and Claiborne Avenues. They travel from that point, river bound along Carrolton, then turn onto St. Charles Avenue, proceeding to Lee Circle. From Lee Circle the route is along Carondelet St. to Canal Street, then back down St. Charles, again past Lee Circle, and back to the starting point. Since it is public transportation, one may board or depart at any stop, approximately every two blocks. The fare is about $1.50.

Honey Island Swamp Tour

Take a journey into the swamplands of Louisiana. Picture the moss hanging on gnarled cypress trees as you travel into one of the wildest and most pristine river swamps in America. With the swamp tales of pirates and sightings of Big Foot in the back of your mind, you may be just a little bit nervous at first, but after your first boat ride you'll want to go back again and again!  You'll be overcome by the primitive beauty of the cypress trees rising from the water...the sweet smell of wild azaleas in the air. Honey Island swamp is unique because it's one of the least-altered river swamps in the country. It's pretty much in its original condition, almost a pristine wilderness. Those touring Honey Island can easily see why Louisiana is known as Fisherman's Paradise.

Location: Honey Island Swamp Tours will pick up guest at the New Orleans East Kampground, the tour starts at the Crawford Landing near Slidell.

John C. Stennis Space Center in south Mississippi is one of 10 NASA field centers in the United States. Because of its important role in engine testing for more than five decades, Stennis is NASA's program manager for rocket propulsion testing with total responsibility for conducting and/or managing all NASA propulsion test programs.

 

Stennis tested the first and second Saturn V rocket stages for NASA's Apollo Program, including those used to carry humans to the moon. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, there was a saying in the communities surrounding Stennis, "If you want to go to the moon, you first have to go through Hancock County, Mississippi."
