Westwego is located in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana and is considered to be a suburb of New Orleans. It lies west of the Mississippi River. There is a story that the city was named Westwego because it was an important crossing point on the river in the 19th century when the great westward movement happened. According to legend, travelers would often say "west we go," and the (rather unorthodox!) name stuck.
