Whenever anyone asks us where to go on a vacation in the US, our answer is always the same, New Orleans! It’s an intriguing and mysterious city, with a unique history and rich culture. Life in New Orleans can easily be defined with three words – food, music, and partying. It’s our favorite city in the United States and second only to Paris worldwide.
Like Paris with its arrondissements, New Orleans (NOLA) is divided into districts/neighborhoods, and each one has its own history and points of interest. The most famous of New Orleans’ neighborhoods is, of course, the French Quarter where you’ll find St. Louis Cathedral, Jackson Square, Café du Monde, the French Market, and Bourbon Street. But, there’s much more to see outside of this main tourist area, such as the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the National World War II Museum in the CBD/Warehouse District; the shops, restaurants, and boutiques along Magazine Street in the Garden District; and the many bars and music venues along Frenchman Street in the Faubourg Marigny. New Orleans is a city known worldwide for its cuisine and its music, and though it has quite a bit to attract visitors during the day, keep in mind that it’s also a city that thrives at night.
