Now that the cooler weather has blessed Louisiana with temperatures that make extended outdoor adventures bearable again - it's time to grab the entire family for a road trip!  For my money, it doesn't get much better than a visit to one of our state's many animal parks.  You don't have to drive all day and night, and you don't have bust out a full fledged vacation budget just it get a little quality family time and tons of great pictures.

If you are game, I've got every free autumn weekend booked up for you and the kids.  Just grab a cooler and fill it up with snacks and drinks for this day trip marathon that features some of the coolest animals in the world!
