“Laissez les bons temps rouler” might be the catchphrase for New Orleans and Mardi Gras, but it fits just as nicely in the nearby destination of Slidell, Louisiana. The bayou’s call is strong here, where you can spy alligators drifting along in the swampy shadows or taste the spicy, bold flavors in a jambalaya. Should the mood strike, you can easily get to New Orleans for a dab of debauchery, or simply relax at one of the many welcoming hotels in Slidell, LA.
From Louis Armstrong International Airport, cross the rippled blue waters of Lake Pontchartrain to reach Slidell, about 43 miles away. The Slidell, LA hotels are ready to welcome weary travelers like yourself and launch you out into the Louisiana wilds. We suggest getting rugged with a boat tour of the Honey Island Swamp. Run your hand over the scales of a baby alligator, see elegant birds take flight and glide over the still water, and then refuel with the deliciously caloric shrimp po' boy. If you would rather catch what you eat, a fishing charter lets you feel the tug of a flounder on the line before you reel it in with a splash. When you’ve had your fill of boats and want wheels, take full advantage of the deals on hotels in New Orleans by booking a car rental in Slidell, LA to get to the Big Easy. The brash notes of world-class jazz music and tasty fried seafood awaits.
