Metairie, the "first suburb of New Orleans" is located on Lake Ponchartrain just east of New Orleans. Though most of it was under water in 2005 when Hurricane Katrina caused such havoc, it is alive and thriving today. You'll find many quality low-cost hotels in Metairie and still be just minutes from the French Quarter, the world's best restaurants, a Saints game or all the Mardi Gras celebrations.
Metairie was established in 1706 by the French. It is the largest unincorporated community in the nation. Located in Jefferson Parish, it was originally a farming area rich in the silt from the Mississippi River. The name comes from the French for leased farm, "moitoire." Old Metairie is the historic district of town that has seen revitalization. There are many quaint shops, businesses and eateries along Metairie Road. The night clubs are close to low-cost hotels with cheap room rates in the area called "Fat City," termed after the meaning of Mardi Gras which means Fat Tuesday, which marks the day before the fasting season of Lent.
The NFL Saints both practice and have their headquarters here. The AAA Zephyrs baseball team plays their home games in Metairie, not far from affordable hotels with great room rates. LaSalle Park has sports fields and nature trails. Golf at the Metairie Country Club or Green Acres Country Club which also offers tennis. Come relax in Lafreniere Park is 195 acres of lush bayous and pictorial lagoons with ducks, nutria and other wildlife. You'll find two miles of jogging paths, a disc golf course, animal carousel, and two recreational areas. Take a swamp tour. Yes, you may see an alligator or two. Fishing is the best here along the bayous and in Lake Ponchartrain, the largest inland lake in the country.
