About New Orleans

Let the good times roll in the colorful city of New Orleans! Sitting pretty on the shores of the Mississippi River in the U.S. state of Louisiana, the city is worldwide famous for its eclectic music, happening nightlife, one of a kind dialects, year-round festivities, European-inspired architecture, lip-smacking Creole cuisine, and the good vibes it exudes. No wonder a swarm of travelers from every nook and corner of the world books their flight tickets to New Orleans to explore this gem of a place. Although music has always been the prominent reason behind the city getting all the attention, Mardi Gras doesn’t lag in taking globetrotters’ fancy either. The over the top carnival can make even a non-party person let their hair down. Don’t lose heart if you miss the hyped festival, for the locals of the city know for sure how to party until the sun plans to shine again. A festival or another is always on the cards every weekend.  

Despite facing a few environmental setbacks, the city continued to prosper against all the odds. Several districts have been restored. French Quarter is a must-visit spot on every tourist’s itinerary. You should take a stroll through its avenues to stumble across vibrant buildings, Cajun eateries, raucous bars, and Jazz clubs. Some of the other points of interest that make this 'Crescent City' worth visiting are the National WWII Museum, Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral, Louisiana State Museum at the Cabildo, New Orleans Museum of Art, and Crescent Park.
