About New Orleans
Nicknamed “The Big Easy,” New Orleans, Louisiana is a busy Southern city that is unique and diverse. It’s a world-famous destination for jazz and the blues, and its rich culinary legacy will have you immediately wanting to extend your trip just to taste everything. When visiting, staying in New Orleans vacation rentals are the way to go for easy access to your favorite neighborhoods and attractions.
It is important that visitors familiarize themselves with the city’s neighborhoods before arriving. Not only will it make finding the right New Orleans vacation rental easier, it will also make locating popular attractions a cinch. The French Quarter is one of the most well-known neighborhoods in New Orleans and is where tourists will find the famous upbeat Bourbon Street. The Garden District is popular among vacationers looking for a quieter, upscale neighborhood, while Mid-City is an affordable option not overridden with tourists. The Central Business District is considered the downtown and sees more business travelers and sports-lovers catching a game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
There are many attractions that can be enjoyed by all New Orleans visitors. Take a ride down the Mississippi River on the Steamboat Natchez or tour Mardi Gras World to learn about its history and how elaborate floats are built. Stroll through each neighborhood to see historic homes with inviting verandas, walk around the City Park, or make a trip to area plantations to see the once mainstays of the economy. See the city’s supernatural side at the Voodoo Museum where the legends and traditions of voodoo are well preserved or call to the city’s wandering spirits on a ghost tour. For families, the Audubon Aquarium is great for rainy days and the Carousel Gardens Amusement Park has a masterful carousel featuring “flying horses” to ride.
Famous for its unique melting pot of foods, New Orleans restaurants serve up a variety of Creole and Cajun classics and many dishes have a mix of West European, African, Caribbean and Native American influences. Gumbo, jambalaya, andouille, and shrimp Creole should be at the top of your list of foods to try on your New Orleans vacation. Other favorites you won’t want to miss include po-boys and red beans and rice, and you’ll never forgive yourself if you don’t have a decadent beignet or mouthwatering bread pudding while in the city.
New Orleans is an exciting city filled with events year-round. Most famous for its Mardi Gras celebrations, the season begins with a parade in January and comes to an end in mid-February on Mardi Gras Day. Also in February, typically on the Monday before Mardi Gras Day, is the Zulu’s Lundi Gras Festival recognizing the Zulu Float Characters. The month of March draws tourists looking to celebrate Irish heritage during the St. Patrick’s Day Celebration, which includes lively parties, food and parades. Families staying in New Orleans vacation rentals during the Easter holiday won’t want to miss catching at least one of the three Easter parades taking place in the city. During April, New Orleans is home to the French Quarter Festival where tourists can enjoy food choices from local restaurants as well as music from hundreds of area performers. If you’re a foodie, visit New Orleans in September for the three-day Louisiana Seafood Festival celebrating the city’s rich culinary heritage.
New Orleans is alive with culture and the spirit of celebration touches all who visit this lively city on the banks of the Mississippi River. Stay in a New Orleans vacation rental so you have all the time you need to explore and eat your way through the city.
