Relocating to New Orleans? Top 10 Reasons to move to the Northshore

Are you being relocated to New Orleans, Louisiana? New Orleans is a wonderful city, but if you’re considering another option with proximity to the city you may consider St. Tammany Parish as a place to call home. St. Tammany Parish comprises many towns/cities including Mandeville, Madisonville, Covington, Lacombe, Abita Springs, and Slidell. Here are our top 10 reasons why you may consider calling this area home.

  1. Beautiful Parks and Recreation: The Northshore is home to some of the most beautiful parks and best recreation in Louisiana. My top favorite is the picturesque Tammany Trace, a 31-mile trail that has Trail Heads with playgrounds and parks which host local events including farmers’ markets, holiday celebrations, and more. Another local favorite is the Fontainebleau State Park, with playgrounds, sports recreation, local events, and more. Across the parish, you will find outdoor gems that await to be explored and admired. Learn more about it here: St Tammany Parks and Recreation

You’ll find delicious seafood, steaks, and Cajun and Creole dishes at local restaurants like Gallagher’s Grill, La Provence, Del Porto Ristorante and so many more…
  4. Proximity to New Orleans and Metairie: While the Northshore offers a more laid-back lifestyle than the city, it’s just a short drive away from both New Orleans and Metairie.

  7. Waterfront Living: With its location on Lake Pontchartrain, the Northshore offers many opportunities for waterfront living and the ability to enjoy not only the lake but waterways like the Tchefuncte. You can choose from storing your boats/jetskis at many of our local marinas or choose to live at properties with private docks, access to community boat launches, and stunning views of the lake.
