    Experience New Orleans: sights, tours and activities

    New Orleans’ unofficial motto is “Let the good times roll,” Laissez les bon temps rouler is how the locals know it. Even Hurricane Katrina, which ravished the city and its inhabitants, couldn’t get this energetic city down. Are you ready to discover this city’s French, Caribbean and African roots?

    Essentials in New Orleans

    Historic neighborhoods: Most visitors will spend almost their entire time wandering around the French Quarter. But New Orleans has plenty more historic districts than just the French one. It’s a city with international roots so it’d be a shame not to explore more. Try Faubourg Marigny, Faubourg Tremé, Bywater, Esplanade Ridge, Uptown, Algiers Point and Carrollton.

    Mardi Gras: No one does Mardi Gras like New Orleans does. In the two weeks leading up to Ash Wednesday, the city explodes in color, parties, parades and feathered costumes. If you’re not in town during the festivities, head to Mardi Gras World to see previous year’s floats and how they’re made.

    Mississippi River: There’s something so romantic about a riverboat cruise. Even short rides will almost always include some great New Orleans food served onboard, a live jazz band and some fabulous scenery along the banks of the mighty Mississippi.

    Hotels and accommodation in New Orleans

    The majority of New Orleans hotels are located in the French Quarter and around the Central Business District but you can find better budget options in the city’s other neighborhoods. Marigny and Mid-City are also popular with visitors. During Mardi Gras, it’s essential to book your hotel rooms as far in advance as possible.
