Ponchatoula has established itself as the "Strawberry Capital of the World" on account of its vast strawberry production. In years gone by, strawberry cultivation was responsible for a great deal of local employment, however, now that the industry is heavily mechanized, the city now relies more heavily on tourism to propel the local economy.
Situated in an attractive location, not merely in terms of the alluring climate (which is particularly suited to strawberry cultivation among other things), but also with respect to its closeness to both New Orleans and to Baton Rouge, Ponchatoula makes for an attractive proposition to those who are looking to find a rental property within the little city of a mere 5,000 inhabitants. However, it's not so much about high rise apartment style blocks in this part of the world. Rather, think country living; think owls hooting in the middle of the night; think miles and miles and row upon row of strawberry bushes. This is what Ponchatoula truly represents - the perfect getaway after a long day at work! See more
Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some Ponchatoula apartments offer parking options, either outside in a common area or within a private garage.
Ask about the stipulations around the parking. Those may include how many guests are allowed and where tenants park.
Some apartments may only allow parking in front of your own unit. Guest parking may be in a common area for up to one person.
If parking is scarce, look around the area before you sign a lease. Ample street parking in a neighborhood championed for its safety is probably fine. However, it’s probably not worth signing a lease if it means battling for daily parking for you and your guests.
Research whether you need a city permit to park in the neighborhood. Look into the associated costs and what to do about visitors who need parking.
Some tenants prefer garage parking near their units. However, an open-air lot may prove cheaper.
Keep in mind that the cost of wear and tear from parking outside can add up. It may be less expensive, in the long run, to look for an apartment with garage parking.
