The Atchafalaya Basin, or Atchafalaya Swamp, is the largest swamp in the United States. Located in south central Louisiana, it is a combination of wetlands and river delta area where the Atchafalaya River and the Gulf of Mexico converge. The Atchafalaya is unique among Louisiana basins because it has a growing delta system with nearly stable wetlands.
Anna Maria Island is the perfect vacation destination, a little sliver of heaven between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. You'll stuff your face, soak up some sun, swim with manatees, shop til you drop, and sail through the clouds (almost), it's bound to be a trip for the books!
