Nestled between Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas, the small town sits on the Pass Manchac waterway, which connects the two lakes. It provides stunning views of tranquil water, that are even beautiful from under the interstate.
Drive on the small side roads for a reminder of what a more rural lifestyle looks like. It’s a nice breath of fresh air, and often a reminder of why you chose to live in the city in the first place.
And while you’re there go to Middendorf’s, one of the best places to get fried catfish!
So the next time you’re feeling cabin fever, just drive 40 minutes outside of New Orleans for some fresh air and fried fish!
