Often Overlooked… Livingston Has a Lot More to Offer

This piece is part 1 of a series on Livingston parish.

Welcome to Livingston Parish – a place that has much more than you think. Physically located between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, you’ll have an easy time convincing yourself to make the 500 square mile parish your next stop on the route.

The attraction of Bass Pro Shops in the early 2000’s started a boom in the retail industry, which came on the heels of exponential population growth.

The Bass Pro still lives up to the billing with plenty to offer. The 163,000 retail facility anchors a 63-acre development which has filled out tremendously since the high-profile shop opened its doors in 2004. Food, clothing, classes, services, and entertainment all fall under one roof.

Businesses have flocked to the development district, providing food venues, other retail outlets… plenty of options for activity in southern Denham Springs.

Bass Pro’s success led to more retail expansion to the east. Once Juban Road received its very own interstate exit in the mid-2000s, talk began of shopping centers cropping up on what was then very barren land. Ten years later, concrete emerged from the ground – offering food and shopping options that many locals never thought would exist in Livingston Parish.  With all the shopping and entertainment at your fingertips, a comfortable place to stay and plenty of great places to eat – what’s keeping you from making Livingston Parish your next stop?
