      While the marshes and bayous of this region make Avery Island worth a visit in its own right, it is the fact that this is the home of the Tabasco pepper sauce that attracts most people. Visitor attractions include a short but informative factory tour where you'll learn the history of this family owned company and see how this world famous product is created; an excellent country store packed with sauces, souvenirs and gifts; and the Jungle Gardens, 170 acres full of exotic plants and native wildlife including alligators and deer.

      If you go:
      Admission onto the island is just $1; entry to the gardens is extra. If you visit the country store, do make sure you try the Tabasco ice cream - it's much nicer than it sounds!
