NEW ORLEANS —The Caribbean may be the first island getaway that comes to mind for vacations, but according to Yahoo! News, Grand Isle, La. is where you can get your fix in the U.S.
Yahoo! News listed Grand Isle, La. in its “Top 5 Island Getaways in the U.S.”
The list was released in the website’s latest episode of ‘Wanderlust.’
The website said travelers could “experience the best that land and sea have to offer” in Grand Isle and four other locations.
Grand Isle ranked No. 4 on the list. No. 1 was Oahu, Hawaii.
“For a more sultry experience (temperature wise, at least), the warm Gulf waters around Grand Isle are perfect for swimming and fishing year-round. Rumor has it that pirate Jean Lafitte hung out near this island, so keep an eye peeled for buried treasure,” the website said.
Grand Isle tourism took a hit after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that smothered the beach in crude oil after the oil rig exploded, killing 11 people. It took more than a year for the community to restore itself as a tourist destination.
“Top 5 Island Getaways In The U.S.”:
- Oahu, Hawaii
- Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
- Sanibel Island, Gulf Coast, Florida
- Grand Isle, Louisiana
- Nantucket Island, Massachusetts
