St. Tammany Retains Best Place to Escape in Louisiana According to National Travel Blog for the Second Year in a Row
Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President, announced today that the travel company Expedia, named an area in St. Tammany, as the best place to escape in Louisiana. In their January travel blog — The Best Places to Escape in Every State — Expedia named the Mandeville area as the “Best Place to Escape” in the State of Louisiana. Expedia describes Mandeville as “….made for slowing life down to a drawl. Located on the placid shores of Lake Pontchartrain, the town is the right setting for sailing off into the sunset…” They go on to tout the lodging options, the opportunities to enjoy the surrounding natural and recreational amenities, paddle the blue ways and to take a moment to relax at a high-end spa.
“Congratulations to Mandeville for retaining this designation on a national level,” said Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President. “St. Tammany as a whole has treasures that those of us who live here, appreciate and work with pride every day to preserve. We certainly appreciate all visitors who choose us as their vacation destinations and we invite them to experience our people, our culture, our great food, and our exceptional way of life.”
