Louisiana is known for a lot of things but I think most people forget that we have beaches here too. I know I personally forget about this little fact. 

Now, I am not here telling you to skip your vacation to Destin this summer to stay a little closer to home. But if you are like me and sometimes you get a craving for some sun then these beaches will do the trick.
