DescriptionLaced with waterways spanned by 52 bridges, the delta city of Houma (HO-ma) is often likened to Venice, Italy. Seven bayous converge, and the Intracoastal Waterway and Houma Navigational Canal provide ready access to the Gulf, where saltwater fishing is popular.
A scenic 140-mile stretch of US 90, beginning in Lafayette and ending in Paradis, intersects with SRs 24 and 57 in Houma. Just south of town SRs 56 and 57 form an 80-mile circular driving tour through bayou country.
