I am planning a trip (in November!) to Louisiana and we would like to explore some of the swamp/bayou area in Louisiana. Currently we are thinking of Breaux Bridge exactly. A Texan friend advised against going there, because he said the recent floods would have destroyed everything and you wouldn't be able to enjoy nature there anymore.
We are thinking of things like kayaking, swamp tours, just walking around and just eating good food. All in all a relaxed couple of days, nothing special.
Is the damage as bad as my friend says? Are the activities I am interested in available/open at the moment as normal, or are there partial/total closures?
