The Northshore of New Orleans

St. Tammany Parish, also known as The Northshore of New Orleans, is less than an hour’s drive north of the South’s most visited destination, New Orleans. We share much of that city’s rich culture – music, food, history – but have our own identity and 80,000 acres of wildlife preserve, too. Our visitors come for the culture, outdoor adventures, and culinary scene.

St. Tammany's location along the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain also makes it a great hub for exploring the area: we are within an hour’s drive of New Orleans’ French Quarter, Louisiana’s beautiful and historic plantation country, and the casinos and beaches of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.



Take Louisiana the not-so-typical way with this custom group itinerary featuring stops around the state.
