Sunset Kayak in Louisiana

Romance in Louisiana

If you’re thinking about a romantic getaway in Louisiana, your dream destination could be Louisiana Northshore, St. Tammany Parish conveniently located just 40 minutes north of New Orleans' French Quarter. St. Tammany Parish is full of romance with a glittering jewel of a lake & a lazy bayous with ancient, moss-draped oaks.

Sunset Paddle

Embrace your romance on the Louisiana bayous with a guided sunset kayak or canoe tour from local outfitter Canoe and Trail Adventures. Pack your favourite beverages, snacks and sweet treats to enjoy once you find the perfect spot to stop.

Sip the Day Away

A cocktail is a great addition to a day with your partner. Enjoy sipping a cocktail on the outdoor patio at The Abita Brewing Company, the largest craft brewery in the Southeast. Or, head over to Chafunkta Brewing Company for a beer before exploring the Tammany Trace, a scenic walking/biking trail. If you and yours prefer vino, LA Serendipity Vineyards and Wild Bush Farm & Vineyard in Bush are ideal for a stroll through the vines on a sunny weekend afternoon.

Together on the Tammany Trace

The 31-mile Tammany Trace connects five unique towns of the Parish. Along the trail you’ll enjoy spectacular vistas and picturesque bridges that are the perfect backdrop for your next couple's photo.

Couples Carriage Ride

Get cosy together and relax during a mule-drawn carriage tour of downtown Covington. Start date night with a 30-minute tour before an elegant dinner at the award-winning Oxlot 9, which is attached to the romantic, upscale Southern Hotel, or if fine Italian is your choice, Del Porto Ristorante is across the street. Take the "ride" atmosphere to dinner at LOLA in the beautifully renovated dining train car. 

Dinner for Two

Dinner with a breathtaking view is the perfect start to date night. The Tammany Taste culinary scene has a wide array of options to satisfy your taste buds. In Slidell, Palmettos on the Bayou is nestled in the oaks on beautiful Bayou Bonfouca, with romantic twinkle lights adorning expansive and lush decks. The Lakehouse in Mandeville showcases waterfront views that are also breathtaking. Along the Tchefuncte River in Madisonville, you'll find an intimate dinner for two at Tchefuncte's Restaurant. Dine at Annadele's Plantation in Covington and book a room to stay the weekend there, too.

Romantic Stays

Book yourselves a peaceful weekend stay at an adorable bed-and-breakfast or a boutique hotel to get away from it all, the Blue Heron B&B in Mandeville is a guaranteed romantic destination. Or book a night or two at the boutique Abita Springs Hotel, with five private suites, lush gardens and an artesian fountain in the heart of Abita Springs. Get away from the hustle and bustle by taking a couple's retreat to Little River Bluffs Nature Preserve and Retreat in Folsom. While there, you’ll be able to explore the walking trails, kayak, bike or go fishing together without leaving the property.

Picnic in the Park

Pack a picnic and soak up the rays on the sandy beach or pier at Fontainebleau State Park. You can also rent one of Fontainbleau's cabins or "rough it" at a Tentrr glamping. Over in Madisonville, stroll the Riverside Boardwalk through the swamps at Fairview-Riverside State Park then pick up dinner from a local restaurant and catch the spectacular, painted sky sunset at the Mandeville Lakefront.
