On this out-and-back ride, you’ll cross the Mississippi River on a ferry, and then follow the levee along the outskirts of New Roads and get a taste of life on the Mississippi as it was in the 1800s. Several lovely plantations face the levee, as do old churches and remnants of slave quarters.
Stop at Not Your Mama’s Café in Morganza for good food and great desserts. The Union Pacific railroad runs parallel to Highway 1 through this village of 800 people. Many years ago, it was a flourishing community and had numerous businesses. It is now primarily a farming community and is widely known as a hunting and fishing paradise. Since this trip is an “out and back”, you can just follow your route back to the ferry, or maybe veer into New Roads for a visit to some of the shops and historic sites along beautiful False River.
