To help you out, we’d like to shine a spotlight on a few of the area’s best… here are our three favorite Metro NOLA neighborhoods.

Gabriel: Kenner

This brand-new master-planned community is located directly on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain in fast-growing Kenner, just west of New Orleans. Gabriel offers a variety of homes—townhome and single-family—in charming Classical, Mediterraneant, and Caribbean styles. It also boasts scenic walking trails and parks, a dazzling waterfront, and a nearby boat launch.

Oh, and did we mention the absolutely stunning tropical landscaping of jungle plants and quiet lagoons?

River Ridge: East Jefferson

River Ridge may be just one of many communities tucked along the Mississippi River, but it’s definitely one-of-a-kind. Its beautiful homes boast large, lush yards, and the neighborhood itself is home to an assortment of businesses, including stores, restaurants, and conveniences.

River Ridge comes with a big bonus, too: it’s part of the Mississippi River Trail, which stretches over 3,000 miles through 10 states. The River Ridge section of the trail is paved and connects with other neighborhoods in the area.

Slidell: The North Shore

Located just 30 miles from the heart of New Orleans, Slidell is a large NOLA suburb known for its amazing selection of waterfront homes. The community itself sits on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain, but the lake is far from its only option for waterfront living. Eden Isles, one of Slidell’s most sought-after communities, is known for its network of canals perfect for boat-owners and anglers.

Another big benefit to Slidell? Its easy access to major highways, like US-11 and I-10, for quick access to NOLA, and other major cities.
