In Louisiana, we are tied to the land and the water, by history, culture, and tradition.  We live in the Outdoors.  It is as much a part of our culture as our music and food.  The Myths and Legends Byway meanders through miles of countryside, with many lakes, parks, wildlife management areas, and even a national forest.

From canoeing the Ouiska Chitto and Sabine Rivers to biking on and off the Byway to hunting wild game to fishing in the creeks, bayous, ponds, and lakes, we have it all!

Be sure and visit the local towns and eat at one of the many restaurants we offer. There are many Farmer’s Markets that sell local vegetables and home made goods. Contact a local tourism office for more details.
