Oakwood Center

Ideal for shoppers and mall walkers, Oakwood Center is a large shopping mall located on the west end of town. It has three main department stores, Sears, Dillard's, and JC Penney, and it also plays host to many smaller stores with trendy but affordable apparel, such as Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe. If you want a taste of New Orleans (literally!), there is a Cafe du Monde located right in the shopping center, so take a break from your errands and window viewing with their signature fresh beignets and world-famous coffee. When you need something that will stick to your ribs, Bucca di Beppo, the well-known family-style Italian chain restaurant, also has a location in this mall.

Weekend Fun

If you thrive on leisure activities on the weekend and don't want to live in right in the big city, Terrytown is the place for you. It is less than 3.5 miles from New Orleans' Garden District, where you can take a stroll among the streets' flowering trees and historic, French-style mansions. The Camellia Grill, an affordable diner with delicious breakfasts, grill items, and pies, is in the neighborhood. From there, you can continue your exploring of the Garden District or catch the street car more central NOLA. When you feel like a lazy afternoon on the water, many companies offer short cruises along the Mississippi.
