Jefferson Parish residents have plenty of reasons to enjoy where they live! Recently, one more popped up when Business Weekly listed Jefferson Parish as the #1 suburb to live in Louisiana! Citing a high median income along with low home prices and unemployment rates, Jefferson Parish topped the list and also ranked as one of the most racially diverse suburbs on Business Weekly’s list. Jefferson Parish was also mentioned as not only a great place for families, but single people as well.
Jefferson Parish is the largest metropolitan area in the great state of Louisiana and offers many great amenities, as well as close access to neighboring New Orleans.

The ability for the area to offer modern amenities and plenty of shopping options while still keeping home prices lower than many neighborhoods in New Orleans makes Jefferson Parish a very attractive option for young professionals and families alike!
