Seafood Sensation

The bounty of Southwest Louisiana’s coasts and wetlands makes this the ultimate road trip for seafood lovers. The southwest corner of Louisiana, sometimes called the "Outback," beckons sportsmen. There’s great fishing, oystering, shrimping and crabbing and the bounty from the waters, of course, finds its way onto the menus of many local restaurants.
