Jefferson, Louisiana is a diverse community sprawling the southern shore of Lake Pontchartrain and ending sixty miles later on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Nestled next to our famous neighbor, New Orleans, Jefferson offers a vibrant night life, as well as the quiet serenity of a nature walk. Our communities are comprised of modern high rises, historic homes, fishing piers, Mississippi River views, marsh land, contemporary and old world restaurants, flourishing industrial parks, and family-friendly green spaces.
An area of rapid growth and business development over the past several decades, Jefferson has the ability to offer venues and accommodations to a broad spectrum. With two major convention centers and numerous recreational facilities Jefferson hosts conferences, meetings, exhibits, theatrical performances, and sports tournaments. Attractions ranging from historical to adventurous and budget conscious accommodations provide families with a memorable vacation. The business traveler can enjoy the convenient locations of housing and accommodations to industry, still enjoying close proximity to dining, shopping and attractions.
We invite you to experience Jefferson. Visit with the locals at a fair or festival, party at a Mardi Gras parade, taste authentic Louisiana cuisine, shop the retail capitol of Louisiana. Fish and hunt in Sportsmans Paradise, hike and camp in state parks, swim and boat along Jefferson's coast.
