There’s no other American city like it.
New Orleans is a melting pot of many different nationalities and cultures that all come together to create one of the most vibrant and exciting places you’ll ever visit. Known for world class cuisine; jazz and everything musical; art, history, and literature; architecture and culture; indoor and outdoor recreational and sporting events; festivals and celebrations.
Two of the most famous celebrations in New Orleans are Mardi Gras and The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. If you can’t make one of these, don’t worry - there is a fair, festival or celebration for everything. We even celebrate at funerals and honor the departed with a jazz funeral and second line parade.
