Set against the backdrop of historic architecture and tree-lined streets, Sala Avenue is the prime spot to soak up the culture, food, and atmosphere that Westwego has to offer. This charming downtown walkway is loaded with things to do, such as the Westwego Historical Museum, Theater of Performing Arts, and the Westwego Art Center, which hosts a variety of galleries from local artists and creators in the New Orleans area. It is the perfect escape for a little weekend shopping and noshing, and a great way to spend a sunny Saturday with a date or the kids.
Bayou Segnette State
If urban life is getting you down, there is no need to fear. Just outside of town lies the South Louisiana retreat of Bayou Segnette State Park. Popular for bird watching, boating, swimming, hiking, and biking, this mammoth green space is an outdoor lover’s paradise. You can find people from all around enjoying the state park on the weekends, soaking up the sun, and fishing from the shore. It is family friendly, and there are pavilions and barbecue grilling areas set up so you can make a day out of it with a picnic and some cold ones. It is definitely worth the trip.
