Belle Chasse Reviews

22 reviews
All Categories
Belle Chasse community is a small, quaint parish with excellent schools, great fishing, safe and family friendly parish in which to live. The parish in general is considerably large, but the majority of the population is centered around its 3 main high schools - Belle Chasse High, Phoenix High and South Plaquemines High. This community is greatly involved with its schools.

The community is known for its wonderful and great fishing. Many charter or local fisherman can find you great locations to find a wide array of fish.

The community is full of local, small businesses with very few outside business involved in its economy. The oil companies and military are prominent, but the community is not heavily influenced by big name companies like Walmart, Rouses etc.

A great community in which to live and play overall.
Review Belle Chasse
Belle Chasse is the perfect size town for anyone who wants to have a small town and big town feel. Belle Chasse has a tight nit community and also is near New Orleans for those who like bigger cities. It is a great place to raise a family due to the proximinity of the Belle Chasse Elementary, Middle, and High public school. These public schools have high ratings, and are some of the best in the state. There is also the YMCA in the community that requires a paid membership and public playgrounds and fields for residents. Activities to do are limited to festivals and sports recreation; however, other activities can be found in nearby cities that are usually 10 minute drive more or less.
I love the area I live in! It is safe for everyone around, the crime is not very high. Although it is located near one of the highest crime rate city, New Orleans, it is peaceful! Also it is a short drive to see the city, or you can go see the gulf! The people around the area are so kind, and generous; they always ask about your day. The atmosphere when you do go downtown is like no other, you can hear the faint sound of Cajuns speaking in French, and jazz bands. It truly is an experience like no other.
