City of Harahan Blog

New Orleans is known for it’s reputation as one of the USA’s flashiest and most cultured metropolitan areas – yet it is home to numerous charming and welcoming suburbs, and more people are coming to the New Orleans suburbs searching for a home for their family. Out of the many beautiful suburbs in the Greater New Orleans Area, Harahan is considered to be New Orleans’ best suburb to live in by Movoto

Despite being considered the top New Orleans suburb, Harahan is neighbors to other great cities and towns. Movoto ranked New Orleans’ suburbs accordingly:

    1. Harahan
    2. Boutte
    3. Elmwood
    4. Belle Chasse
    5. Metarie

We were very pleased to see that we had been recognized as New Orleans' top suburb, but it is no surprise to us that we would be considered as such. After all, Harahan provides many with an abundance of great amenities. Here are just a couple great things you can find in the City of Harahan:

  • Less than a 15 minute drive from New Orleans
  • Great local restaurants including Seither’s Seafood and Kim Ahn’s Noodle House
