Hi all -

I've been feeling the need to escape the city for a day, quite possibly this weekend, and I was looking for recommendations on where to go. I'm looking for somewhere quiet, secluded, and beautiful. A friend recommended going to Pass Christian and sitting on the beach because, while not great in "beach" terms, is a nice and scenic and quiet place to pass a day. Any other recommendations? It doesn't have to be on the water, although considering how much is around, it is welcome to be.

The Clark Creek Natural Area is just across the state line near the Mississippi river, about 125mi from New Orleans. It's the nearest real "hills" to NOLA with lots of hilly terrain, creeks and waterfalls. It feels more like Tennessee/North Carolina Smokey Mountains than south Louisiana. I have personally hiked these trails a handfull of times and have always enjoyed it.

You could go west to the Atchafalaya basin. Hendersonville is the general area where there are swamp tours and restaurents. It's interesting to drive over the swamp on I-10. Take the first exit and go south, that's where we used to go. You could come back down River Road from Baton Rouge.
