This Could Be Home: On the Riverbend of Jefferson

By Gardner Realtors | May 9, 2019

Following the Mighty Mississippi River, as it bends alongside the Uptown/Carrollton neighborhoods, you’ll come across the beautiful community of Jefferson, Louisiana. You’ll soon understand why this town is more affectionately known as Old Jefferson as it has the charm and feel of an old-school main street neighborhood.

Walk to the end of Oak Street in New Orleans, and now you’re on the famous River Road in Jefferson. As you can see, you’re just a two-step away from the Big Easy, so there’s never a shortage of things to do and see in Jefferson and Jefferson Parish!


Filled with legendary oak trees, Jefferson is a genuinely Louisiana city. You’re never far from world-class outdoor activities like camping, boating or fishing. Walk or run on the levees of the Mighty Mississippi. Get your fishing rod ready or head out on the bayou in your boat or kayak. Of course, you’re incredibly close to the city amenities of Metairie and the sights and sounds of New Orleans, all while being just a short distance away from local schools, churches and nature-filled parks.
