What we do as your North Shore property manager:
North Shore Area Information
Founded in 1810 St. Tammany Parish is referred to as part of the "Northshore" or "North Shore" throughout metropolitan New Orleans, owing to its location on Lake Pontchartrain. It is the most affluent parish in the state, has a nationally-recognized system of public schools, and is the most politically conservative parish in the New Orleans region.
Clear streams, piney woods and idyllic communities filled with antique shops, galleries and restaurants are found throughout St. Tammany Parish, on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. Only forty minutes from the French Quarter in New Orleans, revel in Northshore art, cuisine, culture and the great outdoors.
There are about 80,000 acres of national wildlife refuge set aside in the parish, including Big Branch National Wildlife Refugee and the Northlake Nature Center on Bayou Castine. Birdwatching is popular on the Northshore, and many endangered red-cockaded woodpeckers live here.
The Tammany Trace, a jewel of a bike trail threading through 31 miles of St. Tammany Parish, the trace runs on what is an old railway system that dates back to 1885. This bike path connects Slidell all the way to Covington and is a great way to enjoy the Northshore outdoors.
Kayakers, paddle-boarders, and canoeists find easy access along many of the bayous and rivers and on Lake Pontchartrain. Join a guided swamp tour of the pristine Honey Island Swamp in Slidell, or go fishing with one of over a dozen experienced charter captains in Slidell. Learn more about paddling in Louisiana.
