What if it were possible to explore a variety of towns each with its own charm, atmosphere, and background, all while being minutes away from the Big Easy? Home to the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, and the gateway to New Orleans, we can’t tell our story without our famous next-door neighbor. Encompassing both sides of the Mississippi River, Lake Pontchartrain, and the Gulf of Mexico, each town offers its own personality with sceneries ranging from swamps and bayous to cityscapes and high-rises. Our various communities are comprised of outdoor centric attractions, quaint historic districts, as well as a trendy art presence, contemporary restaurants, modern theatres, shopping, and metropolitan expanses. Rich in culture, diverse in its people, and steeped in tradition, Jefferson offers all the heart of New Orleans, a unique Jefferson experience.

The Jefferson Convention & Visitors Bureau's media team can assist all media in pursuing stories about our area. We can help plan your visit, generate story ideas, show you around town, check facts and arrange meetings. We are here to help you tell Jefferson Parish's story! For assistance, please contact Charlene Hale, Director of Partner & Leisure Sales at
