Welcome to New Orleans

New Orleans goes by many names - The Big Easy, NOLA, The Crescent City - but the only true definition is found by visiting. The city is world-famous for its music, architecture, history and one-of-a-kind culture. The city dates back to the 17th century when the colony was ruled by the French, before getting handed over to the Spanish and ultimately Americans. The stratification of cultures has left an indelible mark with unique buildings, churches and neighborhoods that can been seen today. As of the 2012 U.S. Census, about 370,000 people call New Orleans home, who embrace the warm climate throughout the year.

To explore the city, many visitors and residents alike hop on the historic street cars that make their way to all of the attractions. The St. Charles Avenue Streetcar is listed on the National Register of Historic Places; Loyola Avenue Streetcar links the Union Passenger train terminal, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, the public library in the Central Business District, French Quarter and Warehouse District; and the Riverfront line accommodates visitors who want to enjoy shopping. Each ride only costs $1.25. Otherwise, you can use the RTA bus lines, bike around or take a cab.

Things to Do in New Orleans

A scenic view of Jackson Square in New OrleansThere is no shortage of things to do or places to see in New Orleans. Get your groove on in Uptown and the French Quarter where live music pours out of bars all night long. Many visitors head to Frenchmen Street, and some of the popular spots include the Blue Nile, Tipitina's and Preservation Hall, home to the famous Preservation Hall Band. You won't be able to miss St. Louis Cathedral, the oldest church of its kind in North America, which overlooks Jackson Square. You can also visit the Cities of the Dead, cemeteries filled with above-ground tombs due to the city's elevation below sea level.

Of course, New Orleans is prized for its celebrations and festivals, including Mardi Gras - which has been called the Greatest Free Show on Earth - Spring Fiesta, Jazz Fest and more. The rest of the year, you can enjoy amazing architecture along St. Charles Avenue, swing by a nearby plantation, grab a drink along Bourbon Street or catch a New Orleans Saints football game at the Superdome. No trip would be complete without Cajun cuisine featuring jambalaya, crawfish concoctions and gumbo. A local favorite is also the po' boy, a tasty NOLA sandwich.
