Last year we had a series of things you can do in St. Tammany if you don’t have back pain. We are continuing that series this year with some things you can do in the area if you don’t have shoulder pain.
This has been opening for about 10 years. It’s a great place to bring the kids for something different. You can purchase concessions after you work up an appetite climbing their various tracks. Slidell Rocks is open on Sundays and is available for birthday parties.
Similar to Sector 6 in New Orleans, Elevation Station is the Northshore’s ultimate “bounce” house. Tucked away in Madisonville, it’s a great place for the kids AND adults! Elevation Station offers classes for those looking to spice up their fitness routine and is also available for birthday parties!
If there is one thing New Orleanians know how to do it, it’s Mardi Gras. Even though we are 23 miles away from the foot of the south shore, we still celebrate the season! The Northshore has its own krewes and parades such as the Krewe of Eve, Krewe of Olympia and even the Krewe of Mardi Paws (our own dog parade). Mardi Gras is a great time to spend outside with the family.
Downtown Covington is quaint and unique. It’s full of culture, spice and everything nice. Chic boutiques to 5-star restaurants AND local breweries, you name it, Downtown Covington houses it. Seasonally Downtown Covington will host special events and fairs as well as charity events.
Living so close to the beautiful Lake Pontchartrain, we are lucky to have a beautiful fishing pier as well. Sunset Pointe is a great place to take the kids how to fish, to take your sweetie out for a picnic or to snap a couple shots of the sun rising/setting on the horizon.
We hope you enjoyed our suggestions for these wonderful things to do around the Northshore area!
