General Information

Description - From vast, wild wetlands to the serenity of shrimp boats in the harbor at sundown, there are many things to see that are unique to the Lafourche-Terrebonne Scenic Byway's corner of the world. Water surrounds much of the environment along the byway. Cypress trees and Cypress knees are a common sight on several of the area's swamp tours. Cabins built circa 1875 housed some of the people who worked for Laurel Valley sugar mill, a rural life sugar plantation, in an earlier era. From antebellum plantations and magnificent church art to shrimp boats coming into port at sundown, the byway provides the onlooker with an eye-full of culture, history, and scenery.

Directions from : From Thibodaux, the traveler can take La. Hwy. 1 or La. Hwy. 308, following Bayou Lafource southeastward on its slow, meandering way to the Gulf of Mexico. Two other routes can be taken from here. A short northward route to Chackbay, via Hwy. 20, runs through a rural area of sugarcane fields and woods. The southward route starts on Hwy. 20, then goes down a winding Hwy. 90 (Bayou Black Drive) to Houma, then back up Hwy. 311, which runs by several of the much-publicized plantations of the Bayou Country.
