Let yourself be taken in by the deep, rich lure of the lore, culture, and history of the Big Easy. Whether you’re in the mood for dark, spooky history or cheerful street festivals, there’s something waiting for you in this bayou town. When you deplane at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, you can rent a car, call a ride share, or hop on public transit provided by RTA or JET and get right on the way into your adventure.
While you’re seeing the sights, don’t forget to take advantage of the unique food culture of New Orleans. Bid your diet farewell and sample a little bit of everything: Creole and Cajun cuisines, soul food, unique local desserts (like beignets and bananas Foster), and fresh seafood. Then walk off your culinary tourism with one of dozens of tours. Swamp tours, neighborhood tours, food and drink tours, and even cemetery and haunted location tours are available. See what New Orleans has to offer beyond Bourbon Street and the French Quarter.
Whether you’re heading to New Orleans to join the Mardi Gras festivities in early spring, to explore the storied history and unique culture that the bayou breeds, or for no real reason in particular, you can do it all.
