TRAVEL, TOURISM, & HOTELS
The Northshore Half Marathon has established excellent hotel rates with numerous surrounding facilities, as a convenience for our runners.
One of our race partners, the St. Tammany Parish Tourist & Convention Commission, has a great site that highlights everything you need to know about travel, touring, food, drinking, and must-see attractions on the Louisiana Northshore. With events calendars, city overviews, restaurant lists, and points of interest, this site is quite handy for all those travelling to the area for the race.
Mandeville residents will have an easy commute to the start line on race day. New Orleans is a quick 45 minutes away and Baton Rouge is a driveable 1 hour and 20 minutes.
