Belle Chasse is a small town with a relaxing lifestyle within the hustle and bustle of a major metropolitan area. Located just 6 miles from downtown New Orleans, Belle Chasse is far removed from the fast paced urban lifestyle and tourism of the city. Just a 20 minute ride from the French Quarter, Belle Chasse sits on the edge of Louisiana's largest, yet most isolated parish. Better known for it's legendary seafood and citrus farms than crowds and over development, Plaquemines Parish holds on to it's reputation as the most unique of the 7 parishes that make up the New Orleans Metropolitan area.

For a small town, Belle Chasse has big credentials! Belle Chasse is the gateway to America's largest offshore oil and gas producing region, America's second largest seafood producing region and the home of one of the largest military installations in Louisiana. It is also home to a 27 hole public golf complex and one of the highest median incomes in Louisiana.

Plaquemines Parish is synonymous with fresh Louisiana seafood. The parish annually exports millions of pounds of shrimp, crabs, oysters and fish annually. The Plaquemines Parish Seafood Festival is renowned as one of the best seafood festivals in Louisiana. Held each May in Belle Chasse, the festival celebrates the rich heritage of the people of Plaquemines Parish with great local seafood and cuisine, live music from popular local bands and traditional Cajun musicians, arts and crafts from local artists and artisans, carnival rides and of course the Seafood Queen Pageant.

Plaquemines Parish also has a strong citrus industry. The Louisiana satsuma, famous for its natural sweetness, is grown on citrus farms along the Mississippi River down river from Belle Chasse. As the parish furthest south in Louisiana, Plaquemines Parish also has the mildest winters, ideal for growing satsumas. The naturally rich delta soil produces superior tasting satsumas. The same rich soil has also made Plaquemines Parish famous for the production of “Creole tomatoes”. Lovers of these exceptionally good tasting satsumas and tomatoes come to Belle Chasse from all over the New Orleans area to purchase bags and baskets of locally grown fruits and vegetables at produce stands such as Johnny Becnel’s Produce Stand. Famous for its locally grown tomatoes and satsumas, Becnel's has become a New Orleans area landmark.
