Along with the marshes, bayous, and extraordinary wildlife, Avery Island is the home of the McIlhenny Company — creator of the famed Tabasco Sauce. Delve into the history of the family-owned company, tour the factory to see how the sauce is made, view the pepper fields and more. The tour is free but there is a $1 fee to access the island which supports coastal restoration. While here, visit Jungle Gardens developed by Mr. Ned, son of the Tabasco sauce inventor, Edmund McIlhenny. More than 170-acres are filled with lush, exotic, botanical species from around the world. Within the property, Bird City offers opportunities to observe alligators, waterfowl, herons, and approximately 250 pairs of snowy egrets nest that here in the spring. There is a fee to enter Jungle Gardens that includes the Bird City.
