Just beyond the outskirts of New Orleans, nestled in the lush natural beauty of Southeast Louisiana, lies the historic, cultural oasis of St. Bernard Parish. Meandering through the parish, the San Bernardo Scenic Byway is the only State Scenic Byway in the New Orleans metro area. It follows the Mississippi River.
The Byway takes visitors past 19th century military barracks and the site of the Battle of New Orleans. Ancient oaks and fragrant magnolias guide visitors past plantation homes and cemeteries where the past and the present come together.
The Byway tour ends at the world class fishing sites of Hopedale, Delacroix, Yscloskey and Shell Beach. Watch as the boats bring in the catch of the day or try out your own rod and reel.
