Why Did I Come?

I came to Mandeville to see the downtown area and shop because it was included in 1000 Things To Do Before You Die: USA Edition. However, I could not find anything. The Internet couldn't help me find a historic downtown and then the GPS couldn't find anything. I stopped at Starbucks and asked for the downtown area but there was not much shopping available. Very confusing!

The city is near
Abita Springs
and north of New Orleans.

My Favorite Part

My favorite part of the area was visiting Lake Pontchartrain. It was very peaceful and relaxing. Watching the birds and cars on the bridge while listening to the crashing of the waves was a very fun way to spend some time.

Surprise Attraction

I was really surprised by the Mandeville Trailhead which is the stopping point on the 31-mile Tammany Trace walking and cylce track. There was a water station where kids were playing in their bathing suits. Also, there was a historical presentation around the pavillion and an ampitheater for fun entertainment. Very impressive! And all FREE!

    What a wonderful park area. The jogging and bike paths are great. The Mandeville Trailhead Ampitheater looks wonderful. Nothing better than spending the day outdoors.
