New Orleans is a vibrant city for a weekend trip. Multiple bed and breakfast options are located near each of the city’s main cultural attractions. These include the French Quarter, an area named for its French architecture and heritage, and has the famed Bourbon Street at its heart--a thirteen-block strip known for its bars and clubs. Another popular tourist destination is the Garden District, a charming tree-lined neighborhood that offers peaceful and beautiful sightseeing.

Between these areas, NOLA is packed with museums and art galleries; on the outskirts of the city lie luscious bayous and countryside.

    Natural Features

  • New Orleans is located near the Gulf of Mexico and the Mississippi River. These bodies of water shape its coastal atmosphere; the city is surrounded by bayous. These green spaces are home to rare plants as well as a variety of maritime wildlife, including herons and egrets, alligators, catfish, and crawdads. The heat and jungle-like atmosphere of New Orleans plays an important role in the city’s popular culture; much of its music makes reference to this distinctive milieu. Boat tours of the swamps and bayous are available for those hoping to explore the natural beauty, and several national parks are located near the city as well.

  • Food and Drink

  • New Orleans is home to two must-try cuisine styles: Cajun and Creole. Cajun is a French-speaking Canadian culture, and its style of cooking incorporates West African, French, and Spanish techniques. The food is typically served in three different pots, one for the main dish, the second for steamed rice or seafood, and the third for vegetables, especially the “trinity” of aromatic ingredients: green pepper, onion, and celery. In New Orleans, Cajun cuisine often includes crawfish, shrimp, sausage, and seafood, and is frequently prepared fresh with local ingredients.

    Creole cuisine is also common in Louisiana, and similarly blends West African, French, Spanish, and Amerindian cooking elements. (Differences between the two cuisine types include the use of tomato sauce in Creole food, typically absent from Cajun meals.) Signature Creole dishes include jambalaya, which contains meat or seafood and vegetables mixed with rice.

    Classic French bread sandwiches, called Po-Boys, are common in the French Quarter: the best places include Bears Poboy’s, Radosta’s, Guys’ and Domilise’s. Popular restaurants to try Gumbo--a soup that is the official state cuisine--are Antoine’s, Acme Oyster House, Gumbo Shop and Galatoire’s.

  • Weather

  • New Orleans’ weather is typically warm, with long, hot summers and short, mild winters. The region’s “wet season” extends from April to September, with higher rainfall than usual during these months, though a warm, wet climate is present year-round as well. The weather is often humid in New Orleans due to its proximity to coastal waters. For the same reason, the city is affected by hurricanes and tropical storms during the summer months and the early fall.

  • History

  • The city of New Orleans played a central role in the historical development of Louisiana and the American South. Much of its fascinating history lies before the city formed part of America, however. The area of present-day New Orleans was home to Native Americans for millennia. The city is located near some of the oldest known burial mounds in North America.

    New Orleans was colonized by the Spanish and the French in the seventeenth century, prior to the Louisiana Purchase in the early years of the United States’ existence. Many cultures and languages mixed at the port city, including Haitian, Native American, and African cultures that left an enormous impact on New Orleans’ present-day music, architecture and food. Expect to see Creole cuisine abound in New Orleans--a cooking practice created by the Creole, or the descendants of inhabitants of colonial Louisiana during French and Spanish rule.

    As part of the United States, New Orleans was an important city for trade and particularly for the slave trade--museums in New Orleans today delve into this dark history and its legacy on the region. In the twentieth century, New Orleans became a central location for the Civil Rights movement. It continues to play a crucial role in the economic development of Louisiana and the South. The city was greatly affected by the 2005 Hurricane Katrina, in which eighty percent of the city flooded. Rebuilding efforts are still underway in New Orleans.

  • Activities

  • One of New Orleans’ most famous activities is its vibrant and bustling nightlife. The French Quarter and the crowded Bourbon Street are both key locations to sample NOLA’s distinctive music, food, and drink. The city is also well-known for its Mardi Gras celebrations. A parade winds through the city to celebrate this holiday; carnival attire and revelry are common.

    For sports fans, the Morial Convention Center hosts a range of games and events throughout the year, and the Superdome, home of the New Orleans Saints. History buffs can check out the Lafayette Cemetery, a nineteenth-century graveyard that holds the tomb of John Howard Ferguson--the defendant in the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson case, which upheld the constitutionality of racial segregation in public facilities.

    New Orleans also has a packed theater scene, where guests can catch a variety of plays and musicals. The city is sometimes known as “Hollywood South” due to its role in producing movies and music; guests can see the filming sites of many movies, or watch one themselves in theaters. One popular option is the Prytania Theater--a historic single-screen movie theater preserved to look as it did around 1914. Shopping and dining venues abound throughout the city, most famously on Royal Street, which stretches through the French Quarter.

  • Things to do

  • New Orleans is sometimes called “Big Easy” because of its nightlife--so one of the most popular things to do while staying is to grab a drink, check out live music in a bar, or simply wander down Bourbon Street and the surrounding busy and noisy areas.

    Visitors can explore New Orleans’ history at a variety of downtown museums. They can take a stroll through Jackson Square--a historic park in the French Quarter, and the site where Louisiana was made a U.S. territory after the 1803 Louisiana Purchase. Other historic attractions include the St. Louis Cathedral, which is the oldest cathedral in continual use in the area of present-day United States, and is currently the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans.

    Sight-seeing destinations include the Marigny district, a neighborhood packed with bohemian bars, jazz clubs, and restaurants serving Cajun options. Sidewalk musicians and craft stalls make this section of the city a perfect place to go for a walk and experience New Orleans culture. Winding through the neighborhood is the famed Frenchmen Street, home to popular live music shows. Guests can also visit Washington Square--full of oak-shaded lawns--or catch a show at the Marigny Opera House.

    Other key streets to visit in the city include St. Charles Avenue, which features nineteenth- and twentieth-century mansions built by the industry magnates who developed modern-day New Orleans economy. The oldest continuously running streetcar route winds through this Avenue, connecting the French Quarter to the Garden District.
