The St. Tammany Parish Tourist & Convention Commission was established on Nov. 18, 1976. The Commission's mission is to market and promote St. Tammany Parish as a highly desirable destination for visitors and thereby increase the economic impact of tourism on the area.
The official visitor center for the parish, the office is located in Mandeville on Highway 59 just north of Interstate 12 (Exit 65). Stop by to pick up a visitor guide, brochures, and information about attractions across Louisiana. Be sure to stretch your legs on the surrounding boardwalk; the center was erected over a native swamp filled with trees, bushes and plants native to Southeast Louisiana.
