Houma is located in southeast Louisiana, near the Gulf of Mexico. It is the parish seat of Terrebonne Parish and has a population of approximately 32,000. There are several unincorporated areas adjacent to Houma, with the largest being Bayou Cane, which is commonly referred to by locals as Houma. However, it is not included in the census count and is a separate census-designated place. Houma is in a region of Louisiana that is steeped in Cajun tradition and culture. The area is famous for its Creole and Cajun food, swamps, fishing, music and hospitality. Houma is also known for its Mardi Gras, although not as well known as nearby New Orleans. Houma is a growing community, but many residents still earn their living as their ancestors did as shrimpers, crabbers and fishermen. Houma is surrounded by lush bayous, wetlands and swamp formed by the Gulf of Mexico and the Mississippi River Delta. Recreational activities in the area range from fishing and boating and crabbing to hiking, camping, golf and biking. Houma is also home to the Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum. The museum offers exhibits, a peaceful bayou-side park, charming porch overlooking the bayou and is a perfect place for weddings, receptions, meetings and other celebrations.
