If your trip to Houma is all sorted out but your travel itinerary is looking a little empty, we can give you a few hints and tips.
Stop by Williams Avenue Recreation Center. It's one attraction you'll usually find on many travelers' to-do lists. If you still have space on your travel itinerary, The Ball Park and Southern Oaks Golf Club will keep you occupied as well.
You're probably curious about what else is nearby. Head a little further afield from the center of Houma and you'll find a few iconic sights. New Orleans is 47 miles away and the home of Mercedes-Benz Superdome. It's well worth a day trip.

Normally your car rental company will bill the amount stated on the fine to your credit card, including local surcharges. Otherwise, they may provide your contact details to local law enforcement agencies, who'll then send a fine directly to you.
