It's time to dive into the rich area of Tangipahoa Parish, located between Baton Rouge and Covington. This parish is home to the lovely towns of Hammond, Ponchatoula, Amite City and Kentwood (home of Britney Spears) and more — each displaying the area's deep history and culture. The state's famous berry is on display during the Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival held each April. Any shopper or antique-lover will fall in love with Ponchatoula, also know as Antique City. African-American art and history is on display at the Tangipahoa African American Museum in Hammond, or take a drive on the Southern Swamps Byway for another view of the area's history. Go fishing and birding in the Joyce Wildlife Management Area and after your outdoor adventures, stop in for brewery tours at Gnarly Barley or the Louisiana Purchase Brewery.
