America’s Coolest Southern Towns

Just half an hour north of New Orleans, Abita Springs (population: 2,300) overlooks Lake Pontchartrain, seemingly a world away. Once a Chocktaw tribe village, it’s become a bucket list destination for beer lovers thanks to Abita Brewing Company, where brews like raspberry-tinged Purple Haze and the Big Easy IPA are made from British barley and water from their onsite wells. Fans of folk art come from around the world to visit the Abita Mystery House, hidden behind an old gas station. Inside, there are more than 1,000 found objects and homemade inventions including an Airstream that has been hit by a UFO and a dog/alligator sculpture that can’t adequately be described in words. The no-frills Abita Springs Café may not like much, but the food is killer: we love the breakfast burrito, shrimp po’boys and fried onion rings. Work off your meal with a bike ride on the Tammany Trace, a 31-mile trail along a former railroad corridor.
