New Orleans – Things to do

New Orleans Attractions

You know the scene: the saxophonist playing jazz on the street, the ornate balconies and the pastel-coloured architecture – you’re going to love New Orleans. Known for its colonial French Quarter, the Big Easy is a melting pot of French, American and Creole cultures. It abounds with lively clubs, a mysterious voodoo history and a gritty Southern vibe. Let’s not forget the annual Mardi Gras celebrations. When you watch the parades of masked dancers, you’ll be hooked on this city.

Gumbo

Food

Trying Creole and Cajun food is a must but don’t miss Antoine’s Restaurant either. Dating back to 1840, it’s the oldest continuously running eatery in Louisiana. Try the gumbo, a stew that originates from Choctaw Native Americans.

River Cruise

We highly recommend you take a tour on the Mississippi River on a traditional paddlewheeler. As you sip on a Sazerac, there’ll be live jazz bands and historic sites such as the location of the 1815 Battle of New Orleans.
