I am a big fan of Bay St Louis. My dad's side is originally from the area, and I have great memories of it as a small, country, coastal town, and it's right in between Biloxi and New Orleans. I have not spent much time there since Katrina because I moved out of state, but I've heard it's only becoming better!

Just curious, but what part of NOLA are you trying to get to within two hours? Just crossing the city can add a significant amount of time. Is this rush-hour commuting driving or just trying to get there?

Assuming you're trying to get to NAS New Orleans (assumption based on your forum name), then McComb is slightly outside 2-hours during normal traffic. The State Line along I-55 is within 2 hours, but wouldn't be during rush-hour traffic. The state line along I-49 is about 45 minutes closer.

But any "land" close enough for commuting to New Orleans will be expensive. If it were cheap, a developer would buy it in a heartbeat, sit on it until the housing market comes back, then put up a subdivision. There are people who work in downtown NOLA making much more money than a standard Marine would also love a few acres to have a few horses.

Land prices would still drop dramatically once you're outside the levees and anything on the Northshore and northward would go cheaper the further up the op went. If they wanted to find something in that direction within 2 hours why not look between Amite City and Hammond. If hey would like to live in Mississippi, but be within 2 hours I would suggest living east of N.O. versus north since the state line is only 45-50 min away, if that long, in that direction. Going north, like you said, takes about 2 hours to get to the state line. The OP now seems to be interested in land between B.R. and N.O. now however.
