Louisiana goes by a lot of names–the Bayou State, the Creole State, Sportsman’s Paradise–but for those looking to commune with nature, it’s the Pelican State first and foremost. For up-close-and-personal animal interactions, attractions and preserves around the state may be just the ticket.

It’s been a big year for Hawaii’s largest island. Following three months of unprecedented seismic activity at Kilauea volcano that began in May 2018, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the island’s top attraction, reopened Sept. 22, 2018, after it was confirmed the lava flow had stopped. While sadly, the black lava that flowed over 10 square miles prompted evacuations and destroyed 700 homes, the Island of Hawaii’s tourism infrastructure was unaffected. Today, Island of Hawaii tourism officials are sending a clear message to planners, attendees and travelers: It’s business as usual in the destination, it’s safe, and all is open for visitors to enjoy.
