Overall Guide : It is a very nice place to live if you stay outside the city as it is expensive to live in houma. The traffic gets terribly bad if the tunnel or over pass bridge goes out. On the up side... more we have mardi gras and other functions that give us family orientated outings.
Not to be missed Downtown Live after 5 , mardi Gras , Calling of the tribes pow wow

Overall rating 6
Overall Guide : Needs more activities, so that people don't have to travel all the way to new orleans, just for entertainment, other than bar rooms, and clubs.
