Description: You’ll drive along roads lined with colorful wildflowers. Depending on the season the highway might be lined with golden coreopsis, cheerful sunflowers or crimson clover often against a background of dark green pine trees. You’ll see placid bayous, peaceful plantations, shady forests, and rich productive farmland. Visit well-kept churches, and a variety of parks along the lakes and bayous. Here you can feast on local favorites such as fried chicken, catfish, or chicken fried steak with green beans, okra, sweet potatoes, and cornbread. In the quaint towns, you’ll discover hidden treasures in the shops and fascinating history in the museums.
