The Northshore is home to several craft beer breweries and great restaurants , many accessible through a 31-mile railroad-turned-bike route called the Tammany Trace. Along the shady Trace dotted with towns and trailheads, you’ll also get to cruise through Bogue Chitto State Park and Fountainebleu State Park (both perfect for bird-watching).
In this guide, we’ve included breweries, brewpubs, and restaurants that are easily accessible from the Tammany Trace and a few restaurants that are a little further and worth the drive (or some extra bike-riding if you have the time).
If you don’t have a bike of your own, you can rent one at Brooks Bike Shop. If you are driving to the Northshore from New Orleans (or elsewhere), stay the night at the Southern Hotel (also home of Oxlot 9 restaurant).
