New Orleans International Airport (MSY)

Known for its cool jazz, hot nightlife and heavenly food, New Orleans is a place of culture, creativity and individuality. Founded in 1718, the history of New Orleans reads like a fanciful novel. The Big Easy has so much to offer, and caters to every traveler. Whether you’re a sports fan, history buff, adventurer, aspiring chef or music lover, there’s an attraction in New Orleans to suit every taste and preference.

Discover Jazz And Jambalaya

The heart of the city is captured in the melting-pot atmosphere of the French Quarter. From the boisterous party vibe of Bourbon Street to the bohemian elegance of Royal Street, it’s full of entertainment and surprises. The Quarter, a National Historic Landmark, was the original site of New Orleans, and is the oldest neighborhood in the city. Its wrought-iron balconies, colorful streets, elegant architecture, jazz clubs and world-renowned restaurants make it worth exploring.

From shopping and music venues to fancy restaurants and voodoo temples, you’ll find plenty of interesting things to do. Amble around the gardens inside the square, toss a coin to make a wish at the fountain, and take in the collection of fortune-tellers, artists and musicians who surround the square. When you get hungry, head to Café du Monde across the street for beignets and café au lait. And, no trip to the Quarter is complete without souvenir hunting in the historic French Market.

Drive through the Garden District, full of elegant 19th-century homes in Italianate, Greek Revival and Victorian styles. This grand neighborhood is bathed in Southern charm, stands out as one of the country’s most gorgeous neighborhoods, and is a popular destination for everyone. At the intersection of Prytania Street and Washington Avenue, you will find shopping, cafes and the historic Lafayette Cemetery. Don’t miss a delicious meal at the colorful Commander’s Palace Restaurant, a New Orleans culinary institution, which has been in operation since 1880.
