is one of America’s oldest scenic byways. This 180-mile driving tour traverses both Cameron and Calcasieu Parishes. Through marsh grass and wildlife sanctuaries to the Gulf of Mexico and back again, this unique loop offers fishing, crabbing, hunting, boating, and nature photography. It’s an excellent place to look for alligators and bird watch, especially during migration season. There's a free app for your smartphone that's like having a tour guide with you in the car! You can also visit Creole Nature Trail Adventure Point to practice your crabbing skills and plan your trip along the trail.
