The Big Easy

Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities. Founded in 1718, the city boasts a culture rich with French, Irish, Haitian, German, Caribbean, and African elements, combined to create an explosive energy personified by the region's many festivals, unique cuisine, and numerous historical attractions. Though hit hard by the infamous Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans remains one of the country's top vacation destinations, famous for using almost any occasion as an excuse for a parade or party. As the laid-back locals like to say, New Orleans is always planning a party, enjoying a party, or recovering from one.

Where to stay in New Orleans

Though you can walk to most tourist attractions in New Orleans from a hotel in the central business district, remember that many other parts of town feature less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations. Smaller hotels and private guesthouses in quiet residential neighborhoods offer not only good local food and spacious rooms, but can also allow you to explore the city's culture away from overwhelming tourist crowds. To reduce your carbon footprint during your stay, consider one of French Quarter's many green or eco-friendly hotels.
