Youth Culture

The Lost Bayou: A series about South Louisiana’s disappearing culture & communities

For the more than 900,000 teenagers and young adults in South Louisiana’s Bayou Region, much of the thriving youth culture scene of past decades has disappeared.

Bars, clubs, entertainment, and hangouts are now few and far between.

“My friends and I would always go to the skating rink for lock-ins to have a good time; but now it has been converted into some apartment buildings and a church,” says Rebecca Davis, who grew up in Morgan City in the ’80s. “There isn’t much now for our grandchildren to do.”
