Louisiana doesn’t have Welcome Centers only at the state lines. Nope, they have to be different and post them throughout the state. When we go to MS to visit my parents, we always stop at the Atchafalaya Welcome Center off I-10. The Atchafalaya is a really large swamp in southern LA and this welcome center has a movie theater inside that shows a 10 minute movie all about the swamp. It is fun to stop and get out, use the bathroom, and then just relax for a bit (or let Sam run crazy if no one is in the theater with us) before continuing on towards MS.

Today, when we stopped, their tree was decorated for Mardi Gras.

If you ever get a chance to visit, wear white- they use black lights in the movie and it is always good for a laugh. I really love this scene.

I caught Sam mid-blink in the picture below. He always insists on getting some “coffee” and petting the wildlife when we stop.

There are also a couple of goofy animals that “talk” to you and try to convince you to go into the theater and watch the movie. It really is fun!
