Cool Temps at Couturie Forest!



If you are a fan of City Park in New Orleans and are planning to visit soon, consider exploring the Couturie Forest.  Nestled within the park, Couturie Forest is an 80 acre paradise consisting of trails which outline 8 different ecosystems.  The forest is also home to New Orlean's highest point, Laborde Mountain, which measures 43 feet above sea level.  I know, I know many of you who were born and raised in this area are probably exclaiming that "Monkey Hill" in the Audubon Zoo is the highest point but in fact, that isn't true.  Laborde Mountain surpasses Monkey Hill by nearly 16 feet!! :)   Our Frugal Family Travelers recently paid a visit here.  We enjoyed the scenery on the various hiking trails and loved exploring Laborde Mountain.  This is also a GREAT location for those who enjoy bird watching!  Combine this with our Crescent Park Itinerary and with a detour to Cafe' Du Monde and you will have a full day of adventures fit for any Frugal Family Travelers!

Tips: 
Pack water, sunscreen, and insect repellent!!

Be sure to check the area for letterboxes!!  To discover more about letterboxing Click Here to read the information previously posted on our blog.
  
Note:   We packed some great family board games and a blanket!  After our hike in the forest we found a place to relax and picnic in City Park!
