Why You'll Love Living in New Orleans East

All the Suburban Comforts

As famous as New Orleans is, the city is a major tourist destination. New Orleans East is an escape from all of that. It's a primarily residential area. Since New Orleans East offers few condominiums and multi-family homes, spacious single-family homes (often with large lots) are the focus of the real estate market.

It's a relatively short drive to the French Quarter and Uptown New Orleans from New Orleans East. Restaurants, shopping malls, annual festivals, and museums are close at hand, too.
