Pointe Coupée Parish is a vacationer’s (and retiree’s) paradise! The parish is surrounded by major rivers on three sides, with two of the Mississippi River's most scenic oxbow lakes and a network of smaller streams. Part of the Atchafalaya National Heritage Area, you’ll have plenty of options for boating, fishing and hunting, or just enjoying a day along the water’s edge at marinas, water-side rentals, or even taking the historic bike or Atchafalaya heritage water trails!
You’ll find dining that is second-to-none, an antiques trail and other eclectic shopping, including the New Roads Main Street, as well as historic attractions for touring. Plan your visit to coincide with annual events, from one of the oldest Mardi Gras celebrations to spring fairs & festivals, to fishing tournaments, cook-offs, harvest events, and holiday happenings, or visit any time – you are always welcome. Get to the Pointe and enjoy your visit!
