What Bert Has To Say About Houma-Thibodaux Metro Area

Houma is the commercial and cultural center for a two-parish area comprising much of the Mississippi Delta extension south into the Gulf of Mexico south of the Mississippi River itself. Houma is deep in the marshlands just a few miles from the Gulf of Mexico and about 40 miles southwest of New Orleans. The swampy lowlands create the Venice-like canals and bayous for which the area is known.
