Moos. “The Landing Apartments are located in an area rich with history, culture, tourism, and economic stability.”

With French, Spanish, Acadian and Native American inhabitants a unique Cajun culture was born. Houma and the surrounding area boasts the draw of authentic Acadian culture, diverse environment and wildlife, plantation homes, and excellent food. The city’s close proximity to New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Lafayette make Houma-Terrebonne an excellent central location for the visitor who wishes to see all the sights and sounds of the bayou wonderland of South Louisiana.

The Landing’s address offers quick and easy access to shopping, dining, and entertainment. It is served by the Terrebonne Parish school district and is assigned to Southdown Elementary, Houma Junior High and Terrebonne High schools. The Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center is on Civic Center Drive, approximately 5 miles from The Landing.

Alligator sight-seeing, marsh and wildlife tours, Chauvin Sculpture Garden and the Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum are just some of the attractions that Houma offers.
