St. Tammany Fishing Pier

The St. tammany Fishing Pier, located at 54001 E. Howze Beach Road near Slidell, is just one of the many places we love to gather for a day of recreation, to sight-see or to just sit back and relax. We look forward to having generations of families enjoy the pier for many years to come.

Tammany Trace

Originally a corridor for the Illinois Central Railroad, the Trace now is an earth-friendly hike and bike trail stretching from downtown Covington, through Abita Springs, Mandeville and Lacombe and ending in Slidell. Our diverse community is connected by the Trace and our bountiful heritage that makes us uniquely the Northshore.
