For those who are unfamiliar with the area, Slidell is a small Louisiana city just north of Lake Pontchartrain and New Orleans East. It’s a family-friendly community with a great selection of private and public schools, many events throughout the year, and a neighborly community. Being close to the lake and the Gulf Coast makes Slidell a wonderful place for anyone who loves being out on the water, and for those who prefer to stay on the land, there are plenty of parks and wildlife preservations close by. But what many might consider one of the best parts about life in Louisiana is the wonderful food scene, and Slidell is no different!
