About New Orleans

New Orleans, Louisiana

A true melting pot of cultures, iconic architecture, unique neighborhoods, rich history, exceptional music and flavors, and unforgettable characters. Don’t forget it’s home to one of the biggest parties on the planet. This is New Orleans – and there’s no place quite like it!

The French Quarter

“Often called the Crown Jewel of New Orleans, the French Quarter is one of NOLA’s most historic neighborhoods. But you’ll find plenty of new mixed in with the old. There’s a reimagined French Market, modern boutiques and artisan cocktails mix with beloved antique stores and old restaurants. (Antoine’s. Arnaud’s. Galatoire’s. Brennan’s – the world would be far less flavorful without you!)

Like the Creole aristocrats lining the galleries of the Historic New Orleans Collection, the French Quarter is a timeless portrait – especially come dusk when swallows glide above the fortunetellers on Jackson Square and St. Louis Cathedral’s butter-crème-colored walls reflect the fiery sunset. Ghost tours troop past mad Madame LaLaurie’s mansion while neon signs stutter to life on Bourbon Street where syrupy red Hurricanes, slosh in famed ‘go cups’– those plastic tumblers responsible for uncountable curbside parties. Night falls. Horse hooves clop, music throbs and gaslights flicker in a place full of long-told legends and those waiting to be born. Create one of your own.” (“French Quarter”)

Audubon Zoo

“Consistently ranked as one of the top 10 zoos in the country, the Audubon Zoo is known and loved for its engaging educational programs and hands-on animal encounters. Don’t miss the Louisiana Swamp and Jaguar Jungle exhibits or their mysterious white alligators! And you can beat the heat during summer at their Cool Zoo, which features a 750-foot lazy river with sand beaches, lounge chairs, water cannons, water curtains and jumping jets.” (“New Orleans”)

National World War II Museum

“The top attraction in New Orleans and a bucket-list destination for fans and students of history around the world, the National WWII Museum takes visitors on a powerful, inspiring journey through the eyes of the men and women who fought for freedom and democracy in the war that changed the world. Immersive galleries and exhibits, interactive experiences, oral histories and more bring the American experience during World War II to life in ways that will stay with you long after your visit is over. This is not a place to rush through – you’ll want at least a half-day to explore this world-class museum.” (“New Orleans”)

Swamp Tours

“If you’re visiting Louisiana, there’s no doubt you’ve heard about the region’s mossy swamplands. Just a short drive outside of the heart of New Orleans, tour companies offer swamp/bayou tours on boats, where you can see – and even feed – gators and other wildlife. Plus, many companies offer transportation to and from hotels, making it even easier to access these nearby swamps.” (“Swamp Tours”)
