Orleans Parish

Visit the serene side of New Orleans at the New Orleans City Park! Channel the outdoor adventurer within by paddling the waterways, biking the paved trails, horseback riding or even hiking the Couturie Forest. Or experience a few finer things at the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden and the New Orleans Botanical Gardens. And don’t forget about the beignets at Café du Monde! 

St. Tammany Parish

If mild Louisiana winter weather is welcoming for you, then check out the outdoor adventures that await in St. Tammany Parish, also known as the Louisiana Northshore. Just a 45 minute drive across Lake Pontchartrain to get to the hot spot of relaxed biking trails, awesome kayaking and paddling and some of the most beautiful sunsets in the state.

Jefferson Parish

Are you a fan of oysters? Then get ready to eat, because Jefferson Parish Oyster Trail is right outside of New Orleans. 

Check out these restaurants specializing in the seafood delicacy, each of which features three-foot-tall, hand-painted oyster sculptures. Twenty-three restaurants participate in the Jefferson Parish Oyster Trail program. Some local favorites include Acme Oyster House, Don’s Seafood and Perino’s Boiling Pot.
