New Orleans is the largest city in the state of Louisiana. It has the meeting of the snooty European and the rowdy third world. Often referred to as the northernmost Caribbean city, New Orleans boasts of its precious historical architecture landscape interlaced with low and mid-rise skyline structures, shotgun and bungalow houses. The city teems with various historic housing styles such as the unique Creole cottages, double-gallery houses, American townhouses, antebellum houses, etc.  The various strata of New Orleans were laid bare in August 2005 as Hurricane Katrina left New Orleans and most of the Louisiana state with unprecedented devastation that rocked the entire world.


Embracing the tedious and painstaking process of rebuilding, the people of Louisiana and New Orleans vowed to make something good out of the hurricane devastation. Part of tourism Louisiana promoted included the areas along the river which never saw flooding and drew inspiration for areas that will symbolize the people’s resilience against hard times and optimism for better things to come. New Orleans reveals its charms as a great city to walk around despite the city’s boorish reputation, amid the echoing sounds of incredibly sweet jazz, R&B blues and funky brass forcing a reaction to dance when one hears it. New Orleans lures travelers with their succulent and authentic Creole and Cajun cuisines enjoyed in short-course cooking classes or at the host of restaurants catering to the city’s epicurean needs.

And New Orleans successfully carried out its mission as it lands on the list as one of the top ten cities most visited in the United States. New Orleans has become a favorite spring break destination where visitors enjoy stylish boutique hotels, live music/concerts watching, cocktail sprees and singles/bar scenes. On the natural side, New Orleans is home to the Audubon Nature Institute which takes care of Audubon Park, the Aquarium of the Americas, Audubon Insectarium and the Audubon Zoo and the beautiful gardens such as New Orleans Botanical Garden and the “Longue Vue House and Gardens”, and City Park which is one of the country’s urban parks that have one of the world’s biggest oak specie.   


The people of New Orleans also capitalized on the numerous celebrations and festivals to get other state residents to come to Louisiana to participate in some of those festive celebrations. The Carnival or more popularly referred to as Mardi Gras season signals the beginning of seeing more tourists in the city than any other time of the year. Another significant celebration focuses on New Orleans’ gift of music – Jazz Fest. It is one of the largest and well-attended music festivals in the country which features throngs of people from all over the world trooping to New Orleans to enjoy and experience days of music, arts and crafts and food. Other major festivals providing a unique experience of the local life in New Orleans include the French Quarter Festival, the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival and the Southeren Decadence.
