Your Audiologists & Balance Clinic in Metairie, LA

In the 1760s, the area now known as Metairie, LA, was largely populated by French farmers practicing métayage, or sharecropping, which inspired the name Metairie. The region began to urbanize in the late 1910s with the introduction of an electric streetcar along Metairie Road, leading to the development of upscale housing tracts in the 1920s.

Despite facing three major hurricanes, Metairie has continued to thrive. It is home to the highly successful Lakeside Shopping Center, the vibrant Fat City nightclub district, and family-friendly Mardi Gras celebrations. Metairie is also known for its recreational opportunities on Lake Pontchartrain and numerous parks offering facilities for sports leagues and youth programs.
