General Information

Description - The Promised Land Scenic Byway was designated for the adventurous spirit. Traveling through Henderson, St. Martinville and Breaux Bridge, the driver will not only view and experience many species of birds, beautiful waterways, wildflowers and beautiful scenery, but she or he will also travel on the levee road. If the travelers are feeling up to an escapade, a swamp tour through the Atchafalaya Basin, a semi-wilderness area where hunters fill their bags, fishermen pass countless hours of relaxation and photographers are entranced by the alligators, deer, snakes, birds, rabbit, squirrel and frogs that make their homes, will serve just right. Authentic Creole and Cajun cuisine at the various restaurants along the road give the trip a delicious diversion, and, the many historic homes and oak trees along the route will delight their eyes.
