I'm thinking about participating in an art and craft show in Kenner at the Pontchartrain Convention Center in mid July. This will be my first time in LA I'm from FL. On the map Kenner is very close to New Orleans and I was wondering if they were badly affected by Katrinna. Living in FL I'm aware that a hurricane can devastate one city and barely affect the next one over. If anyone has any information or advise please let me know. Also hotel info in a good area would be appreciated too. thank you--greta

Along with the usual wind damage much of Kenner had a few feet of flooding due to Katrina, but did not sit in the water for weeks like some parts of New Orleans. So, Kenner is back to normal for the most part, except for additional people, traffic, and crime. At least, as far as visiting it goes, I'd say there wouldn't be any big problems of concern to you.

I haven't stayed in any hotels, since I live here (in Metairie). There are quite a few near the airport.

Kenner is definitely back up & running! It is more crowded and busy than before Katrina. The Ponchartrain Center has a hotel directly next to it... can't remember what chain it is but it's fairly new (~5 yrs??). There is also a Fairfield Inn, I believe, half a block off of Williams Blvd (which is the exit you'd take for TPC) that is about ten years old & would only be 5 minutes away. There are others nearby as well, but those two are the newest.

There are a ton of restaurants (fast food & sit-down) along Williams Blvd. TPC is right on the levee/ lakefront along with a casino and boat dock, kids' park, paved walking/ biking trail. Very poular place for families & fisherman, especially in the evenings.
