"Mandeville -- Across the Bridge" Mandeville by peachfront

Mandeville Travel Guide: 32 reviews and 54 photos

Supposedly the 24 mile Causeway Bridge across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans/Metairie to Mandeville is the longest bridge in the world. My favorite place to bird in Mandeville is Fontainebleau State Park, which also has camping, biking, lots of grills for picnicking, and fishing. Bald Eagles are often seen in winter, and Red-Tailed Hawks, Red-Shouldered Hawks, and Northern Harrier are all easily seen. I have occasionally seen small alligators or snakes in the park, but don't bother them and they won't bother you.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:a good central location for Northshore activities
  • Cons:way too much traffic and construction
  • In a nutshell:I'm not sure I want more people coming here
