The best roadside scenic viewpoint in every state
Bayou scenery may not be for everyone, but if you appreciate the serenity of a marshy wetland, you’ll find no better place to take it in than Pointe-Aux-Chenes. This little spot along Island Road near Houma runs along the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary and is a perfect place to pull off and look at migratory birds landing on the water. It’s not a striking mountaintop or a bright city skyline, but for rural Louisiana, it’s just about heaven.
