New Orleans Northshore

St. Tammany Parish, also known as New Orleans Northshore, 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, outdoors adventures, and the culinary scene.

The Northshore’s location 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 Gulf Coast Mississippi.
