Sports in Sunset Louisiana


Make Louisiana your playground. Whether you like to get out on the field and "mix it up" in a friendly ball game, swing the clubs on a beautiful course, or soak up the sports action from the comfort of a stadium seat, you'll find plenty of options. Check out the fabulous golf courses of the Audubon Golf Trail, for starters. Or check the schedules for college, semi-pro and pro sports teams. LSU football or basketball, anyone? Hockey in Louisiana? Yes, we have that too. Do you enjoy NBA basketball? Take a seat in the New Orleans Arena as the Hornets take the floor. And for professional football, perhaps you've heard of the current world champion NFL team called the New Orleans Saints!


Sunset has always been known for its contributions to the agricultural industry as a leading producer of sweet potatoes. But today it is also known for a popular horticultural event, The Celebration of Herbs and Gardens. Held each May, the Sunset Garden Club hosts this daylong event. Seventy-five vendors display native plants, herbs, vegetable plants, yard art and herbal products. Another stop for plant lovers is La Caboose Bed & Breakfast, also home to La Caboose Jams and Jellies. Three acres surround the collection of restored train cars, now used as sleeping quarters and includes pecan trees, orchards, lush gardens of herbs and native flowers. Just on the outskirts of town and well worth the drive, is Chretien Point Plantation. Once the center of a 10,000 acre cotton plantation, this home’s history includes stories of the Civil War and a staircase that was replicated and used in Gone With the Wind!
