Mandeville is where urban meets normal. Established in 1834 by the Marigny de Mandeville group of New Orleans, it grew at an opportune time as a lakeside summer resort for affluent occupants of New Orleans. This remains parts in proof in the more established quarters of Mandeville, and in a portion of its key notable properties that are found on Lakeshore Drive.
During the 1950s, Mandeville was associated with the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain through the Causeway, the longest bridge in the world. To supplement its entrenched, lush rural areas, Mandeville offers a full supplement of upscale pleasantries. Other nearby cities with the same charm include Covington, Madisonville, Abita Springs, and LaCombe.
