Houma scored a huge honor this week.
It was named the nicest place in all of Louisiana.
Reader’s Digest named the city among its “Nicest Places in America” for 2019 — selecting one city in each state as part of the list of honorees.
Houma was Louisiana’s pick after Reader’s Digest searched the country and listened to first-hand accounts from locals and visitors in their attempt to identify the friendliest places in the country.
The purpose of the “Nicest Places in America” list is to remind folks about the good people and good deeds that there are in the United States, while trying to inspire others to be better friends, relatives and neighbors.
But Houma’s work isn’t done.
By making the list, Houma is now in the running to be named the Nicest Place in America — a title that goes to the winner of an online competition amongst the 50 chosen cities around the country.
The winner will be given the cover of Reader’s Digest’s November issue, while also detailing the story that earned the city the title.
