Destination guide

Metairie is on the doorstep of New Orleans

Metairie vacation rentals offer a place to stay in a quiet, charming corner of Louisiana's big city. Butting up to the sloshing waters of Lake Pontchartrain, the area is packed with timber-clad cottages and homey little condos that are perfect for a family group. What's more, they all sit less than a 30-minute drive from the attractions of New Orleans proper, where the bustling French Quarter, the big band jazz bars, the spice-scented Creole cookhouses, the classic Mississippi riverboats, and all the other big, bold attractions of The Big Easy await.

Things to do

Metairie has all the joys of New Orleans

Metairie is a sleepy and lived-in corner of New Orleans, which means all the iconic attractions of The Big Easy sit just a short hop over the blocks to the east. It should take around 30 minutes to reach the handsome mansions and townhouses of the French Quarter from you Metairie vacation rental, while the acclaimed Aquarium of the Americas and its all-animal exhibits beckons there too – expect sharks next to Asian elephants, jaguars, and sea lions. Even closer, the Mississippi River has docks and elegant steamers on its courses.


Get adventurous in Metairie

Choosing Metairie vacation rentals over the more popular spots in downtown New Orleans can open up a much more adventurous set of activities for the whole family. Closer to the swamps of Maurepas, and just one long causeway away from Big Branch Marsh, you could easily launch boating tours of the brackish creeks and wetlands from here. What's more, historic pioneer towns beckon from across Lake Pontchartrain, while all the joys of New Orleans itself – French Quarter walking tours, voodoo museums, jazz clubs – are only a short jaunt to the east.


Metairie is all about Mardi Gras season

Metairie follows the same seasonal pattern as New Orleans as a whole, which means the top times to head down are during the winter and spring festival season. That goes from January all the way through to March, and sees the whole town erupt with Mardi Gras parades and ad hoc jazz shows. However, pleasant weather also dominates in December, when fewer travelers are hitting The Big Easy, and when Metairie vacation rentals are even easier to come by.

Natural features

Be sure to take the camera along, because the submerged red maple forests, the bulrush thickets, the hulking water oak, and the elegant snowy egrets are all a wonder to behold.
