Let the winding bayous of the Wetlands Cultural Byway lead you to unbelievable experiences!

Serving as a buffer between the country’s coastline and the Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana’s wetlands are a national treasure. Prized for their important ecological role, the wetlands are also a home base for the state’s seafood and energy industries. A drive along the Wetlands Cultural Byway in southeastern Louisiana is an ideal way to see towns and villages where shrimping, trapping and farming have been a way of life for hundreds of years, and where close-knit families have preserved their cultural heritage with minimal outside influence.
