As one of the oldest cities in the United States, the cobblestone streets beneath your feet are a testament to over 300 years of history. Historical sites and buildings can be found all across the city, but the most iconic area would have to be the French Quarter.

Overflowing with fabulous restaurants and bars, there is a wide variety of options for fine dining and shows. Nowhere better is the cuisine of New Orleans put on display than at Jazz Fest, as restaurants from all over the city come together to offer their premiere dishes. Music is especially important to the city, with many venues hosting live bands and choirs most nights of the week. The annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival is a local favorite offering tons of live music, running from gospel to Jazz to contemporary to Pop.

One of the most popular museums in the city is the award-winning National WW2 Museum which gives patrons a comprehensive glimpse into the U.S. involvement in the Pacific and European Theaters. New Orleans is home to two professional sports teams, the New Orleans Saints in the NFL and the New Orleans Pelicans in the NBA.
