I am a current Slidell resident and I love how peaceful the city is. New Orleans has it's charm with being lively and full of bustle, but Slidell is a quieter place. The parks are safe and fun for all ages. In Old Town, there is a lovely Ice Cream shop. Slidell Memorial Hospital is patient centered and busy. The school systems do their best to attend to the needs of parents and children. Overall, it's a wonderful place to be!

Slidell is a perfect town with a perfect city life. Located just 20 miles from New Orleans as well as from the Gulf Coast, there are plenty of opportunities for careers, continuing education, and entertainment!
Slidell has many stores and restaurants to choose from, but the amount of competitiveness between the stores means that many places end up shutting down because there aren’t enough people residing in the area to support businesses. Politicians are corrupt and there is a lack of responsibility or care coming from the government. The public schools are a disaster with many students complaining of bullying and a rough curriculum.
