New Orleans Attractions
Tucked in the swamp lands of southern Louisiana, New Orleans is a small city with a big reputation. From beignets and Po’ boys to jazz, Mardi Gras, streetcars and cemeteries, there is truly no place like it. The city’s unique music, food, history and culture are the result of French, Spanish, African and American influences.
Named a top 10 World’s Best Cities by Travel + Leisure, New Orleans makes for a perfect weekend getaway. Start by taking in the historic French Quarter – the heart of the city since its founding in 1718 – then head over to the Garden District with its stately antebellum mansions and ancient oak trees. Other must-sees include The National World War II Museum, Jackson Square, City Park, Preservation Hall and nearby swamp tours.
