In New Orleans, you’ll find that music is at the heart of everyday life. This bustling city is known as being the birthplace of jazz, making it reign supreme when it comes to being a top destination for music lovers. Creole and zydeco beats, jazz and brass bands bellow out of some of the city’s most famous dive bars, clubs, and music venues (Tiptina’s, Spotted Cat, and the Preservation Hall in the French Quarter just to name a few). And while the city has expanded its musical tastes in recent years, jazz still remains king, a genre so intrinsically tied to the culture of NOLA that its residents even have “jazz funerals”, a longtime tradition in which live music is played through the procession. Those looking to travel to The Big Easy for a getaway have plenty of B&Bs that offer the same jazzy aesthetic that sets New Orleans apart from every other major musical destination.
