Southern charm in swamp-shrouded Slidell

The waterways of the Pearl River and the rolling wetlands of the Big Branch Marsh wiggle and squiggle their way all around little Slidell, encasing the town in a patchwork of misty bayous and swamps. Sleepy Slidell itself is a picture of a lived-in Louisianan town, where workaday vibes and Southern charm abounds along the willow-topped rivers and between the hickory-scented BBQ joints. Slidell vacation rentals not only offer a great place to stay on the outskirts of buzzing New Orleans, but also a chance to immerse yourself in the quagmires and everglades where bald eagles and snapping alligators lurk in the mire.

Things to do

Smoking rockets and Slidell swamp tours

Slidell's surroundings are its main draw, as they spread out to the waters of Lake Pontchartrain and the marshes of the Old Pearl River. To the west, the much-photographed Honey Island Swamp is the place to go for boat tours through the famous Louisiana bayous – crane your neck upwards to see the dropping willows and look to the undergrowth for creeping armadillos and skulking alligators. For something a little more out-of-this-world, you could opt to hop across the state border to Mississippi's INFINITY Science Center, where tales of space exploration and rocket launches unravel.

Activities

Bayous and boating lakes in Slidell

No trip to this corner of America's Deep South could possibly be complete without at least a short jaunt through the swaying bayous and the mist-filled riverways the region is so famous for. Slidell vacation rentals make the perfect base for doing just that, with nearby boating and biking outfitters offering intrepid excursions into the surrounding swamps and lakes. And once you're done spotting gators and eagles and the fabled Honey Island Swamp monster, you can hit the rollicking honky-tonk bars of Slidell's center, or go for some big-band jazz in the nearby French Quarter of New Orleans.

Weather

Vacationers flock to Slidell in the winter and spring

Slidell and all of southern Louisiana is known for its sub-tropical climate, which means heavy airs of humidity and relatively warm temperatures for most of the year. However, when Slidell's at its hottest, during the summer from June to late-September, the hurricane belt rips through this corner of the continent, often causing strong tropical storms and twisters. That means most will come to enjoy the po-boy subs and gumbo in the winter and spring, when the weather's good, Mardi Gras rocks the streets, and jazz festivals erupt all over nearby New Orleans.

Natural features

Meeting gators and muskrats in the swamps

If there's one environment that defines Slidell, it’s the swamp. Nestled in the heartland of the Louisiana bayous, the town is encompassed by the rolling marshes and winding waterways of the Pearl River, the endless morass around Honey Island, and the Big Branch Marsh National Wildlife Refuge. All of that means Slidell vacation rentals are the perfect place from which to launch explorations into this wild corner of America, where muskrats and otters, armadillos and bald eagles all compete with gators and bobcats in the flooded forests along the Louisiana shores.
