-St. Bernard Parish-

St. Bernard Parish is New Orleans' most historic neighbor in a variety of ways.  Located on the Eastbank of the Mississippi River, you will find that this parish is as resilient as the come!  Being the most affected parish after Hurricane Katrina, everything needed to be re-built, but 'Da Parish' is thriving now more than ever, especially with all of the hype that Old Arabi is bringing to the table.  Old Arabi has become the new scene for Art Galleries, Antiques Shops and even a popular nightlife with 40 Arpent Brewery setting it's roots here.

Both historically and culturally St. Bernard has a unique story to tell.  Famously, this parish was the site of the Battle of New Orleans during the War of 1812.  The battlefield, operated by the National Park Service, is open daily for visits to the interpretive center and park ranger chats.  St. Bernard Parish (San Bernardo) was originally settled in 1778 by Spanish colonists from the Canary Islands who were recruited by the Spanish Empire which currently had control of New Orleans.  These settlers, known as Isleños, brought with them their own culture, history, food, language, and customs.  They were a people of the land, hunting and fishing and working on the many sugar plantations in St. Bernard Parish.  Over many generations, and through great difficulties, they have succeeded in preserving their heritage and their language and the descendants of the original settlers still maintain a community in the parish today.  Visitors can experience the contributions and way of life of the Isleños at Los Isleños Museum & Village located on Bayou Road in lower St. Bernard Parish, open Wednesday - Sunday for tours. 

Today St. Bernard Parish is made up of many different types of people.  It is a family oriented community, with many generations of families living and working in and out of the parish.  Their people's welcoming nature is the best reason to visit.  No-one is a stranger and the locals are always willing to sit and chat with you.  It is the perfect place to meander the scenic byway for a day, visit the local sites, and stop in at a variety of local restaurants or even a roadside stand.
