Abita Springs Things to Do

  • UCM Museum

    John Preble began his life's work at the UCM Museum, and has created one of the most eccentric works of 'art' and roadside kitche you may ever see. An artist, by choice or just by skill, he began turning junk and knick-knacks into comical, and amazing pieces of works. What may look like a trailor park at first, after giving it a harder look becomes...

    St. Tammany Parish is sort of like Harris County in Houston. It houses many different smaller cities. At least that's what I'm equating it with. In support of the beautiful landscape the parrish built 31 miles of connecting pavement for those to enjoy the tall pine trees and weather the area allows. The Trace connects Covington, Mandeville, Abita...

  • Abita Recreation Center

  • The Abita Brewery

    Learn how they make the beers. Like I said above, we had lots of fun on our EVEG not-quite-school-related trip. The tap room makes the trip all worth while for some visitors, but really, it is neat to see how they make the beer, from brewing to bottling. If you can't make it to Abita Springs, check out the website... www.abita.com

    Originally started as a micro brewery the beer was so good it is worship far and wide now. Located in Abita Springs because of the great water found there. It also makes the best root beer anywhere.

    UCM Museum, a must stop and see place too beautiful to describe. Art, gifts, fun things, great people. I took some art classes there.

    Besides the food at the Brew Pub there are a few restaurants in Abita Springs. I like Artesia, in an old house not far from the brewery with a good menu.

    Saint Tammany Trace is a bike/walking trail through the area's landscape. Formerly a railroad track that went miles it is now used by runners, walkers, and bikers everyday.

    St. Tammany Parish is sort of like Harris County in Houston. It houses many different smaller cities. At least that's what I'm equating it with. In support of the beautiful landscape the parrish built 31 miles of connecting pavement for those to enjoy the tall pine trees and weather the area allows.

    The Trace connects Covington, Mandeville, Abita Springs and Slidell. At each of the cities there is a Trailhead with places to use the restroom and facilities. There are also other attractions. I listed more pictures and information in my Things To Do Tips for each city.

    The parrish and cities keep these trails upkept and beautiful. I have the 31-mile path on my list of things to do. But I was somewhat injured when I visited.

    I also learned in Mandeville you can rent bikes to do the biking. I did not see them at Covington, Slidell or Abita Springs, though.

    Equipment: Will need bike, water for the heat, and any safety equipment.

    Favorite thing: I remember going to Abita Springs as a child for the water and to listen to music at the park. Here is a picture and a link to more information about the Abita Springs Pavillion.
