Cool Little Lighthouse

It was a cool lighthouse and surprisingly it was located on a campus. If you like light houses and are in the area you should give it a look.

This lighthouse is surrounded by the University Of NO. It is on the campus and they don't want you there. You can take pictures from the road.

We got a chance to visit this historical light house while on the Gray Line tour. So glad that we did, as we learned a more about the area, and the light house. Very interesting facts and guides by an exceptional volunteer group.

Staying in Lakeview

Neighbourhood Profile
Lakeview
Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond City Park more great excuses to stay outside beckon, whether on land or by boat. Developed a good deal later than most other New Orleans neighborhoods, Lakeview has a distinctively different look and feel compared to other parts of the city. Fans of mid century modern design and contemporary architecture particularly enjoy leisurely drives around the residential streets of Lake Vista, Park Island and along Lakeshore Drive.
