About New Orleans
New Orleans is a place bursting with vibrant culture. It's one of the oldest cities in the US and is known for its music, food, and art. Jazz night clubs, Creole restaurants, and street art make up the best of these three categories. New Orleans is always planning something; from Jazz Fest to Mardi Gras, festivals in New Orleans are happing all the time! Don't get lost in all the excitement! It's not hard to find something going on, you just have to know the right places to look for whatever kind of scene you are looking for.
Things to do in New Orleans
The most popular place for tourists to check out is the French Quarter. Teaming with restaurants and bars, the French quarter also is a great sightseeing spot with historic sites such as Jackson Square. Take a street car tour through the city to get an initial view, then pick where you want to get your fill of creole food and music after talking to some locals. A riverboat cruise along the Mississippi can give you all three: a great tour, great music, and great food. Bourbon Street is where the bar scene is the most prominent. Outside New Orleans, the swamp tours are mysteriously beautiful and somewhat of a thrill at times when a gator swims up to your boat. Also outside the main city, you can take tours of the grand plantations that are now historical sites. Take a day off touring and drinking to volunteer in a neighborhood where Hurricane Katrina recovery is still in need of hands and hard work.
New Orleans Accommodations
New Orleans vacation rentals range from single room apartments to luxury mansions. Make sure you check out what festivals are happening during your stay because that can drastically change the price and availability of accommodations and flights. Also, check the safety of the location you book a rental in, as not all places are good for children, or get a little more risky at night. Someone traveling for the New Orleans night scene will want to stay in a different spot than a family doing a little site seeing tour, but Tripping has places for both!
