There is something different about New Orleans.
It has a vibe, an atmosphere, a feeling, that makes it uniquely its own.
After three times of being there one thing is certain – you never get tired of it.
Instead it’s always a case of exploring, discovering, breathing in new experiences.
So let’s see what makes New Orleans special.
Four things stand out – the French quarter, the Garden district, the Paddle Boat Ride, the Treme neighborrhood.
The French Quarter
The French Quarter is best known for its colourful and vibrant nightlife, colourful buildings. Bourbon Street closed to cars at 6 p.m. features endless jazz clubs, great bars, restaurants serving excellent Cajun cuisine.
The Garden District
Stately old-fashioned southern mansions glide by as you ride along an old-fashioned streetcar – a trip back into the historic Old South.
Paddle Boat Ride
A two hour ride on an old-fashioned steam-powered paddle boat is a must – see, the skyline of New Orleans, historic buildings, on-board enjoy great jazz and good ole fashioned Cajun Creole food. Enjoy the sights, the sounds of the mighty Mississippi River, the New Orleans skyline, famous historic landmarks, all while enjoying a great meal, listening to traditional Dixie Land jazz.
Treme – the neighbourhood – deeply rooted in the city’s African-American and Creole heritage.
The neighbourhood abound with down-to-earth jazz clubs, soul food restaurants, cultural centres.
