Slidell, located on Louisiana’s north shore of Lake Pontchartrain, is a popular destination for its proximity to New Orleans and the Gulf Coast Beaches. Part of St. Tammany Parish, Slidell is a bustling small town that offers year-round festivals, wildlife attractions, fine dining and shopping.
While you’re here, take in the beautiful green spaces while biking or walking the Tammany Trace. Hunt for antiques and gallery hop in the afternoon, enjoy wine tasting in the evenings and start all over the next day with a stroll through just one of the many festivals that pass through the city. The Northshore also offers great golfing and a thriving arts community.
Have a relaxing evening when you attend a Bayou Jam Concert at Heritage Park, scheduled in the spring, summer and fall. And if you’re visiting Slidell in October, don’t miss out on the more than 150 vendors who set up antiques, collectibles, art and jewelry stalls on First, Second and Erlanger Streets during the Olde Towne Slidell Antique Street Fair.
Seasoned tourist would tell you that taking a swamp tour while visiting Louisiana should be a requirement. Lucky for you, Slidell is home to one of the least-altered river swamps in the country. Honey Island Swamp offers narrated nature tours on the 250-square-mile wildlife sanctuary, which also happens to be the state’s first nature preserve.
