New Orleans is a wonderful city gleaming culture including visual and performing arts, music, architecture, dining and so much more than we could ever list here.  What if you wanted to be close to New Orleans but far enough away to stay out of the spotlight.  The Northshore is just a 30-45 minutes away from New Orleans across Lake Ponchartrain.  The cities of Madisonville, Mandeville and Covington have grown to be just an extension of the city with so much of the same culture of the city just a little quieter and without the tourists.
