Sulphur Things to Do

    We took a tour of the Brimstone Museum this week and found it very interesting. The photographs on the walls gave one a look into the history of the Sulfur industry in the city in the early 20th century.

    Don't just look at the pictures and texts by yourself, have the museum curator, Tom Trahan, give you a guided tour and add more details and information about the history of the industry and city.

    The building itself was originally a railroad depot.

    This nature trail was the first first National Scenic Byway in the Gulf South and is about 180 miles. We took it after we arrived at our hotel. When we drove through it, it remembered us the most about Florida's swamps but just a bit different, we didn't see any indian village on the trip.

    The trail takes you through the outback of Louisiana. When you start on the LA27 as we did you will go pass the visitor center which is located next to the Calcasieu Lake.

    After that you go through the Sabine Wildlife refuge where there is a walking trail (take some bug repellant).

    The trail goes past Holly Beach, where you can get on the beach with your car, then after a short drive you can take the free ferry to continue the trail along the Cameron Prairie Refuge and Sweet Lake (Zoetermeer ?).

    We had the time to stop at Sabine and Holly Beach. In Sabine it was a strange idea that the gators were in the water just next to the walking trail and there was nothing to stop them to get on the walking trail. We didn't finish the walking trail because we where attacked by all kind of bugs that wanted to bite us, unfortunalty our bug repellant was in the hotel :-( but for the part they didn't bother us it was beautiful.

    Fox's is housed in what was originally a Dairy Queen restaurant. If you have been in a Dairy Queen anywhere, you know what the insides are like.

    The food is very good. I myself have only had the steak sandwich ( on honey wheat bread ), but I have eaten this more than a dozen times in the last 6 months. My wife and other friends have gotten many other items on their menu, including various pizzas, and nobody has said that they found the food to be anything but delicious.

    Favorite Dish: The steak sandwich on honey wheat bread

    Luggage and bags: Take a cooler and drinks with you, you get thirsty fast when walking around the Wetlands.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Wear light clothes and comfortable shoes when you plan to walk around.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: It's an open door but we forgot it at the hotel..

    Take some mosquito repellent you will be walking much more relaxed as we did.

    Photo Equipment: Digital or Film, take it with you and think about spare batteries and films....it won't eat your lunch it you don't use them.
