New Orleans

What you need to know before you go

    The heart of New Orleans is in the French Quarter, where brightly-painted colonial architecture is brought to life with smokin’ jazz bars and restaurants serving up Cajun classics. You can’t leave without tasting some authentic creole Jambalaya washed down with bourbon cocktails at a tucked-away speakeasy.

    New Orleans bursts with culture, and you might find yourself swept up in the flamboyant carnival that is Mardi Gras, or sashaying to saxophone solos at the Jazz Festival. At any time of year, you can check out dazzling costumes and Southern heritage at the city’s intriguing museums.
