Laissez les bons temps rouler...

Slidell begins where Lake Pontchartrain ends, where the lake forges triumphantly towards the Gulf of Mexico via a deepwater strait. At the Rigolets Pass, you’re as likely to encounter majestic sailboats as toiling shrimp boats...Slidell stands just across the water from New Orleans, 20 minutes away. Culturally—and culinarily—there is little distinction between the two. The Port of Slidell sits at the junction of interstates 10, 12, and 59 and the regions waterways and may be one of the easiest places to access in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast.
