Slidell

Slidell is a small city in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana.

Named after the statesman, John Slidell, this town is a growing suburb of the New Orleans area. Since Hurricane Katrina, Slidell and its surrounding areas have seen a tremendous population surge.

Get in

Amtrak, two trains a day pass through. Your other alternative is automobile. Shuttle services that run between the New Orleans airport and hotels on the Mississippi gulf coast may also be available, but you'll have to check availability since Katrina.

Get around

You'll pretty much need a car. There are several unreliable cab services in town, the worst of which is Camelia Cab.

Do

Find a swamp tour in the nearby Honey Island swamp. It will change how you view Louisiana
