St. Tammany Parish (or the Northshore as it is often dubbed by locals) sits on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain, across from New Orleans. As the most affluent parish in Louisiana, it is the home of a number of towns and villages offering cozy bed and breakfast inns, award-winning restaurants and close-to-home shopping. Its historic districts offer antique shops, art galleries, boutiques and more. Lake Pontchartrain is a recreational haven with offshore access for boaters and fisherman.
