Experience Jefferson...the food, the fun, the culture and the southern hospitality. Next door to one of the most famous cities in the United States, you will discover a place steeped in history and culture, mouth watering cuisine, the shopping capital of Louisiana, and the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.    You will discover Jefferson, just a beat away from New OrleansJefferson sprawls the southern shore of Lake Pontchartrain and ends sixty miles later on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.

Dine your way through one of Louisiana's Culinary Trails and your taste buds will do the two-step!  Brush up on the history of the Louisiana Purchase and the way of life in southeast Louisiana centuries ago.  Learn the Cajun jitterbug at a Cajun Fais do do at Bayou Barn.  Get up close and personal with nature on a guided canoe tour through Bayou de Families.  Hike the nature trials in Jefferson's national park, Barataria Preserve of the Jean Lafitte National Historic Park and Preserve.  Feed the alligators in the Barataria swamps.  Watch them hatch at an alligator hatchery.  Take in a live theater performance.  Shop the retail capitol of Louisiana enjoying quaint boutiques, upscale malls and retail centers.  Play a round of golf at the home of the Zurich Classic.  Charter a fishing boat guided by an expert off the shores of Grand Isle.  Visit lady luck at the Treasure Chest Casino.  Savor a dozen Louisiana char-broiled oysters.  Catch AAA baseball at its finest.  Stroll the Old South, plantation style.  Salute US military veterans at the National World War II Museum.  

Jefferson is home to the family friendly Mardi Gras season and over 150 festivals throughout the year.  The entire family will enjoy exploring Jefferson's abundant parks, playgrounds, nature trails, fishing, camping, canoeing and wavepool.  Families can appreciate Jefferson's value priced hotels with kid friendly meals while visiting popular New Orleans family attractions such as the Audubon Zoo, the Aquarium of Americas and the Insectarium.  As a family friendly compliment to New Orleans, Jefferson welcomes you to expound your itinerary to include some of the many family attractions such as Kenner's Rivertown where the Planetarium and Space Station is sure to spark every child's imagination.  Don't miss the nation's oldest fire station, David Crockett Fire House, in Gretna or an outdoor concert at the Westwego Farmers and Fisheries Market.
