Avery Island #ThisIsAnn

Avery Island is a mysteriously beautiful place where the pepper fields grow, the factory hums, and the McIlhenny family and their employees continue to live and work – as they have for over 5 generations.

My husband and I had the utmost pleasure of going to New Orleans recently with Tabasco Canada. We went to tour the Tabasco factory on Avery Islands and we happened upon the Jungle Gardens which is located right beside the factory on the island. My new Ann Taylor dress was beyond perfect for the once in a life time experience.

About Jungle Gardens

Experience the natural beauty and tranquility of Jungle Gardens – a 170-acre semitropical garden that stretches along Bayou Petite Anse on Avery Island. Naturalists, bird watchers and visitors from around the world will enjoy the gently rolling landscape, botanical treasures and abundant wildlife.

Attractions range from beautiful flowers to birds to Buddha (a magnificent centuries-old statue on the grounds). In season, visitors can see azaleas, camellias and colorful bamboo – as well as alligators, deer and the thousands of snowy egrets that nest in Bird City. It’s a nature lover’s dream that’s open to tourists every day of the year.
