Take a trip over the Crescent City Connection Bridge and discover the wonderful world of the West Bank. Here along the winding bends of the Mississippi, you’ll find the charming communities of Harvey and Gretna.
In these great towns, residents live a short distance from the U.S. Naval Base Reserve and are close to NOLA Motorsports in Avondale as well as Bayou Segnette State Park’s legendary Wave Pool. You’ll also be just a ferry ride away, on the East Bank of the Mississippi, from St. Bernard Parish where you can visit the historic Chalmette Battlefield and grab some lunch at Old Arabi Eats. Like most Louisiana towns, there’s also no shortage of places to get delicious food and drink.
Real Estate options are as vibrant as the residents who live here. There are many single and double-story homes with spacious front yards and fenced-in backyards. You’ll also be intrigued by the fact that properties near the Mississippi River and downtown areas are historical homes that have been restored and renovated. Located just a hop and a skip from the Crescent City, architecture in these communities often resembles that of the classic French and Spanish-style uptown New Orleans homes. Homes for sale here are near West Jefferson Hospital, boutique shops and grocery stores and a variety of public and parochial schools.
With quaint, historical homes, and a mini New Orleans arts, food and music scene, Harvey and Gretna are perfect for those who want a small-town lifestyle, but still enjoy the convenience of a large city!
