Views from the Road: The Scenic Byways of Breaux Bridge, LA

With social distancing guidelines in place, it’s hard to come up with new and exciting things to do to keep your mind occupied.  A lot of people feel comfortable out and about with masks on, but for those that don’t why not take advantage of site-seeing from the comfort of your vehicle?  Driving down Rookery Road gives you amazing views of Lake Martin at a leisurely pace.  Driving through downtown Breaux Bridge, LA allows you to view the historic buildings and the carefully tended potted plants along the sidewalks. 

The Bayou Teche Byway takes you from Morgan City to Cecilia, LA, with Breaux Bridge, LA being near the north end of the byway.  Scenic byways are a great way for residents to rediscover their hometowns and a great way for tourists to get to know what makes Breaux Bridge and Acadiana so unique.  There are many sites to see along the bayou, but perhaps the most valuable thing about driving along the scenic byways are the quiet moments in the car, windows down, and fresh air in abundance.
