Houma homes for sale are some of Louisiana's best. With the combination of vibrant culture, a strong local economy, and unparalleled outdoor beauty, it's no surprise so many people from outside the state ultimately choose Houma for their next home.

Our Realtors® know that the potential for outdoor adventures is one big driver of interest in Houma. As a resident here, you're just a short drive from a truly unique ecosystem unlike any other in the United States: The Louisiana Bayou.

A bayou is a slow-moving creek or a swampy stretch within a river or lake. The Louisiana Bayou stretches across two states (the other one is Arkansas) to a length of 375 miles. Home to over 100 kinds of fish, it's the biggest bayou out there. And exploring it is a local pastime you might just love.

Let's drop in on some of the leading bayou tour providers around Houma:
