Six Flags New Orleans closed in 2005 just before Hurricane Katrina hit and has been sitting abandoned ever since. I took my drone up and filmed what is left of the old theme park.
Fort Pike in Louisiana has been around since the early 19th Century and is one of many coastal forts still in existence in the United States. Unfortunately it has been closed to the public since 2015, but we got permission to explore the old fort.
Lake Pontchartrain has always been important for New Orleans but it was not always easy to access. Several important canals were dug from the city to the lake and a lighthouse was built to provide safe passage for water vessels.
