Metairie is a suburb of New Orleans and the largest community in Jefferson Parish. As of the 2000 census, the population was 146,136 residents. Metairie was first settled by the French in the late 18th century, along an area known as Metairie Ridge. This area later became Metairie Road. An electric streetcar was installed running along Metairie Road in the late 1910s, opening the area up to greater development. Upscale housing tracts were constructed off Metairie Road in the 1920s and this area is now known as Old Metairie. Today, it the most prestigious area of city of Metairie. An area of bars and nightclubs opened in a section of Metairie called Fat City in the 1970s. The city also has a large Mardi Gras season and boasts that it is a much more family-friendly version of the New Orleans Mardi Gras. Metairie is home to the New Orleans Zephyrs baseball team and the city offers many lovely parks for outdoor recreation. All of the attractions of the New Orleans region are conveniently located within minutes of Metairie.
