In the coming months, we’re taking the kids on a trip through southern Alabama, Mississippi and back-country Louisiana.

With the exception of the city of New Orleans, this is new territory for us.

We’ve got a max of four days, and one is dedicated to New Orleans, but other than that…we need some ideas.

Bayou. Swamps. Gators. Plantations. We want to see the deep south.

Drop your best recommendations in the comments. (We’re open to just about anything that is appropriate for kids under 16.)

HELP!
