Louisiana Northshore/St. Tammany Parish

St. Tammany Parish offers scenic beauty and outdoor adventures, a vibrant culinary scene and exciting family-friendly attractions.  Located within an hour of New Orleans, Baton Rouge and the Mississippi Gulf Coast, St. Tammany Parish offers unique Louisiana experiences.

On the Northshore, explore the picturesque Tammany Trace, a 31-mile rails-to-trails conversion perfect for biking or hiking, with trailheads and activities at many of the Northshore communities. See alligators, bald eagles, and more in the serene Honey Island Swamp, where operators offer tours daily. Kayak Cane Bayou through Bayou Adventures, or charter a captain from Slidell and catch monster trout, record redfish, and more. There are about 80,000 acres of national wildlife refuge set aside in the parish, including Big Branch NWR and the Northlake Nature Center on Bayou Castine. Birdwatching is popular on the Northshore, with many bird species, some endangered and rare, visiting or making homes here.

Abita Springs

A popular retreat for 19th-century New Orleanians, this historic little town is still a great place to breathe deep and relax. Quirky, artsy and full of positive energy, Abita is home to the eclectic Abita Mystery House at the UCM Museum, the Abita Opry, and Abita Brewing Company, makers of TurboDog and other popular beers.


Hugging the banks of the lovely Tchefuncte River, Madisonville is rich in maritime history. Explore that history at the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Maritime Museum and learn about efforts to preserve Madisonville’s lighthouse. Fish or crab off the public pier on the lakefront -- or just enjoy some of the best seafood anywhere while overlooking the river.
