AT A GLANCE
Following the scenic route along US Hwy 90, Louisiana, adventure seekers will find themselves immersed in the hospitality of the Bayou Cajuns of Houma. The early settlers to this area named the parish Terrebonne, or "good earth." Throughout the city of Houma and its surrounding communities, visitors will discover many good things: good people, good food and good times.
Come discover the joie de vivre, or love of life that's ingrained into every aspect of our centuries-old culture. You'll experience it at our two-week long Cajun Mardi Gras celebration. You'll see it in our boisterous fetes, festivals and fais do dos. You'll hear it resonate within our colorful Cajun language and distinctive music; and you'll taste its rich flavor in our world-famous Cajun cooking.
Cajunicity is that uniqueness, that rarity that defines us as a whole - as a people, a culture, a community. It originates from our unbridled love of life, music, food an camaraderie and it's woven itself into a rich, robust and sometime unexpected tapestry of life found nowhere else on earth.
