St. John the Baptist Parish

LaPlace, LA Community Magazine

St. John the Baptist Parish, located just 20 minutes from New Orleans, is the epicenter of quality of life and business for entrepreneurs, large corporations and families. Nestled between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, St. John’s, predictably, enjoys access to the bright lights and attractions of big city life. But its verdant farmlands, rural Mississippi River culture and lower cost of living mean life in the parish’s unique small communities – Lucy, Edgard, Wallace, LaPlace, Reserve, Lions, Garyville and Mount Airy –  reflects the slower pace and friendly style only close-knit suburbs can give.
