Just forty minutes north of New Orleans’ French Quarter is St. Tammany Parish, on Louisiana’s Northshore. This lovely area is an excellent choice for golfers, art and nature lovers, foodies, and families. Created in 1810 by Governor William Charles Cole Claiborne, St. Tammany is thought to have been named after Tamanend, a Native American Chief in Delaware, with the title of Saint being purely honorary. Beyond having a long, rich history, there are numerous additional facts and features that make this parish extraordinary. For example, here you can go fishing, try tubing, tour Abita Brewery, go shopping, find festivals, attend family-friendly Mardi Gras events, cycle the Tammany Trace, take a swamp tour or enjoy a wine tasting. You’ll also find the world’s longest continuous bridge over water, The Lake Pontchartrain Causeway. Southbound the bridge stretches across 23.86 miles, and northbound it is 23.87 miles long. As its name would suggest, it bridges Lake Pontchartrain, a gorgeous 610-square-mile lake surrounded by fabulous waterfront communities.
Speaking of Lake Pontchartrain communities, on its northeast shore you’ll find a lovely little community known as Slidell. Slidell is home to roughly 27,100 residents on St. Tammany Parish's eastern edge in Louisiana. The community boasts family-friendly festivals and events, a thriving arts scene, and is near New Orleans’ French Quarter and Honey Island Swamp tours. Additional advantageous features of Slidell include its ten-square-block downtown known as Olde Towne Slidell. Full of museums, restaurants, specialty stores, antiques, and historic buildings, Olde Towne is a fabulous place to spend a day, especially for antique lovers during Slidell’s Antique District Street Fair each spring and fall. Additional shopping opportunities can be found at the area’s newest mall, Fremaux Town Center, and the dining options, especially on the waterfront, are excellent as well. Among the locals’ favorite hotspots are Phil’s Marina Cafe, and Nathan’s and Palmettos on Bayou Bonfouca.
Other points of interest in Slidell include the Slidell Little Theater, Slidell Museum, and Slidell Cultural Center, and the community hosts many events in addition to the Antique Fair. The Slidell Heritage Festival and the All You Can Eat Crawfish Cook-off are quite popular, as are the free concerts in Heritage Park, and the St. Patrick’s Day and Mardi Gras parades. With so many benefits to offer prospective homebuyers, Slidell is an outstanding choice for those considering the Northshore.
