North American Van Lines: The Best of Slidell Moving Companies
Located just across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans, Slidell is one of the most beautiful places in Louisiana for new residents. The city prides itself on its tradition, but it is becoming one of the state's fastest-growing communities as well. The peace and quiet of the great outdoors are at your fingertips here, but all of the wonderful attractions of New Orleans are just over 31 miles away.
According to a 2012 U.S. Census estimate, there are more than 27,300 residents living in Slidell, and more than one-fourth of them are younger than 18, showing that this is a family-friendly community. Slidell is also an affordable place to call home, as the cost of living index is lower than the national average, based on City-Data statistics. The city is part of the St. Tammany Parish and its population grew by 6.5 percent from 2000 to 2012.
Activities and Attractions in Slidell
Slidell is surrounded by beautiful bayou wilderness at every turn. To the south of the city there is Big Branch Marsh National Wildlife Refuge, a federally protected 10,000-acre landscape of marsh and pine-forested wetland. Here you can see a diverse collection of migratory birds and enjoy many outdoor activities including hunting, fishing and wildlife photography. Bogue Chitto National Wildlife Refuge is located in the Pearl River Basin and home to many endangered species, including the American crocodile.
Just like New Orleans, Slidell takes part in Louisiana culture in a big way with their own Mardi Gras parade, numerous Southern, Cajun and Creole restaurants and a special dedication to music with their Bayou Jam Concert Series and free symphony concerts in Heritage Park. One of the biggest points of pride in the city is the Historic Antique District, which is home to some of the city's best shopping and the Slidell Street Fair.
