When you live this close to the Mississippi River, there's a whole lot to enjoy! River Ridge is situated near the Mississippi River Trail, a 3,000 mile trail that covers 10 states. The section that runs through the area connects all of the neighboring suburbs, and it's the perfect place to take a stroll and watch the sunset over the river. We also enjoy exploring La Salle and Zeringue Park—both have some great trails!

River Ridge is conveniently located near US-61, I-90, and I-10, which all run straight into New Orleans' city center. However, there's also an extensive state highway network right near River Ridge that makes getting around a breeze. Nearby highways include LA-3154, LA-3152, LA-3139, and many more.
