Your New Orleans Visit

Welcome to the birthplace of jazz: music can be found in every corner of this dynamic city. Ramble through the streets of the French Quarter, test the goods at one of countless rum distilleries, then chill in the largest municipal park in the country. City Park is home to comedic pelicans and fairy-tale oak trees draped in Spanish Moss.

When to visit

Don’t miss the epic Mardi Gras celebrations, starting in January and reaching a thrilling finale two months later. Spot the costumed parades, known as ‘Krewes’, as they march their way into town.

Hot Tip

The best views of “The Big Easy” are from the gentle waters of the Bayou St John. Jump on a paddle board and bask in the traditional scenery as you drift through the city.
