Life Next Door to the Big Easy
Terrytown, Louisiana, is a moderately sized "census designated" place just across the water from New Orleans. Life in Terrytown isn’t nearly as chaotic as life in New Orleans can be, and residents here enjoy a partial reprieve from all the zaniness. Renters looking for a town with laidback neighbors (who will give you space when you want and drag you out for a night of drinking and dancing when that kind of evening is in order) will love living in Terrytown. This city is also close to some of the wilder (not crazier-wilder, just wilderness-wilder) parts of the Louisiana bayou and Cajun country. Taking a trip through this part of the state is more like travelling to another country than it is like driving three towns over. There’s so much to do in and around Terrytown that renters will never have to worry about having another boring evening or a weekend again.
Eat it Up
Terrytown is next door to one of the best places to eat in the world. A foodie’s paradise, New Orleans, with its dozens of Cajun, French, African, Caribbean and American, restaurants (as well as a great smattering of cuisine from nearly everywhere else in the world, too) is up to its ears in great things to chow down on. Renters could spend a lifetime exploring the local restaurants and never come close to sampling every flavor combination put together in the city. After a delicious dinner, if you feel like taking a stroll the boulevard but you don’t want to leave your drink behind, don’t worry: here, you can feel free to get that glass of wine or daiquiri to go. In Louisiana, there’s no law against drinking in public (though there may still be a few on the books about public sobriety), just be sure you’ve got a designated driver or that you’re cabbing it home. As close as Terrytown is to downtown New Orleans, a cab ride won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
If a raucous group of people all decked out in black and gold start shouting, "Who dat?" at you as you walk down the street, you might want to make sure you aren’t wearing the wrong colors. This battle cry isn’t a request for an introduction; it’s a challenge to find out, "Who dat say day gonna beat dem Saints?" There is little that the people of Terrytown like more than their sports, especially when it comes to Saints football. Though they’re fiercely protective of their home teams, they’re also used to crowds of rival fans gathering on their doorstep; there’s no danger in continuing to root for your old home team when you’re living down in Louisiana (though you’ll make a few more friends if you switch your allegiance to root for the Saints).
It may not be far from one of the biggest cities in the nation, but Terrytown isn’t far from the backcountry of Louisiana, either. A short drive will bring renters out of their modern city and into the bayou, a place where the French language persists and the locals live much as they did a couple hundred years ago (though with the addition of satellite TV and smart phones). Acadiana, the Cajun section of Louisiana (which covers the lower third of the state), is the perfect place for renters from Terrytown to visit if they’d like to get away for a day, weekend, or week.
Meeting the Neighbors
Since it’s a census designated place and not a proper town or city, it can be hard for renters who are new to town to meet the neighbors—there aren’t organized classes, activities and celebrations within town, although there are more than enough in nearby New Orleans. Renters should be sure to get involved with some of the sports and activities in New Orleans city parks. Of course, they’ll also want to head into the city for the many seasonal celebrations, including the two-month long Mardi Gras season. Things are always heating up in New Orleans, so if you’re ever not sure what to do or who to hang out with, a visit to this vibrant and exuberant city may be in order.
