NEW ORLEANS, LA. Lovingly dubbed the “Big Easy”, New Orleans is a vibrant and culturally rich city located in the southern part of Louisiana, and is famous for its jazz music, delicious food, lively festivals, and diverse population featuring a unique blend of African, French, Spanish, and American cultures. This blend has crafted one of the most notable food scenes, from po’ boys and gumbo to beignets and jambalaya, the city’s cuisine is world-renowned. Local seafood is especially celebrated as the traditional cuisine, with crawfish, oysters, and shrimp being some of the most popular dishes, though there are a growing number of vegan and vegetarian restaurants, making it a great place for foodies of all stripes.
The city’s vibrant music scene is one of the most revered—jazz, blues, and brass bands can be heard on many street corners, while larger venues such as the Preservation Hall and Tipitina’s offer top-notch performances by local and national acts. The annual Jazz Fest and French Quarter Fest draw thousands of music lovers to the city each year and are a testament to the enduring power of New Orleans music. Despite being a large city, it has a small-town feel, with many neighborhoods hosting regular festivals and events that bring residents together.
Mardi Gras, which means “Fat Tuesday” in French, is one of the most famous cultural events in New Orleans and is celebrated annually in late winter or early spring, typically in February or March. The celebration is a time of revelry and excess, with elaborate parades, vibrant costumes, and lively music filling the streets of the French Quarter and beyond. The origins of Mardi Gras can be traced back to medieval Europe, but it has evolved over time to become a uniquely New Orleans celebration and a one-of-a-kind cultural experience that draws visitors from all over the world.
One of the most iconic and recognizable areas of the city, The French Quarter, is known for its spirited nightlife as well as its numerous historic buildings, many of which date back to the 18th and 19th centuries and feature colorful facades and ornate wrought-iron balconies. The city covers roughly 90 blocks and is home to the infamous Bourbon Street, lined with bars and clubs that stay open late into the night. At the heart of the community is Jackson Square, a public park often filled with street performers, artists, and musicians, and surrounded by historic buildings, including the St. Louis Cathedral, which is the oldest cathedral in North America. Despite its reputation as a party destination, the French Quarter is also home to several museums and cultural institutions that showcase the rich history and culture of New Orleans.
