General Information

Description - Located just 5 miles east of downtown New Orleans, St. Bernard Parish is a delightful escape from the city. The San Bernardo Scenic Byway (La. Hwy. 46) traverses this area, which is rich in history and cultural diversity. St. Bernard was founded in 1780 by colonists from the Canary Islands, known as "Islenos" (Island people). Their descendants abound in the parish today. Visitors can experience their archaic Spanish language which was established in Louisiana during the Colonial Period at the Islenos Museum. Meandering along the lower section of La. 46, visitors will come to the fishing villages of Yscloskey and Delacroix Island, where charter fishing and the seafood industry are still the community's main business. For those interested in Civil War history, the site of the Battle of New Orleans (Chalmette National Historic Park), a military engagement which determined the destiny of the U.S, will be an awesome sight. In addition to history, the visitors will also find wonderful restaurants, friendly people, great fishing and other activities at St. Bernard Parish.
