Quiet, friendly, and brimming with southern hospitality, the City of Slidell is a gem on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. With a city population of almost 30,000 and a community population of about 90,000, Slidell is small enough to maintain its quality of life and located close enough to a major city to take advantage of its amenities - just thirty minutes northeast of New Orleans and the French Quarter and forty minutes west of the Gulf Coast beaches.
Slidell is a great place to live, work, play, and raise a family. Our schools continue to rank highest in the state, and our beautiful neighborhoods continue to grow. Slidell flourishes with cultural festivals, community parks, five-star shopping, fine dining, and recreation leagues for adults and children. From watching our state champion boys and girls soccer teams to fishing on Lake Pontchartrain and scenic bayous, Slidell is truly Louisiana's sportsman paradise!
