Places of interest in New Orleans
The heart of the city, and somewhere you’re likely to spend much of your time, is the historic French Quarter. This is the oldest part of the city, famous for its French and Spanish-style buildings with intricate cast-iron galleries. Many of the city’s most iconic buildings are to be found in the French Quarter - or simply The Quarter, as it’s known to locals. These include St. Louis Cathedral, an impressive building which is the oldest cathedral in continuous use in the USA. The cathedral sits facing Jackson Square, a National Historic Landmark right in the center of the French Quarter - and the view of the cathedral from the park is an iconic photo opportunity waiting to happen.
Don’t miss out on the French Market whilst in the Quarter. This bustling market is a hive of activity, and one of the most popular attractions for locals and visitors alike. There’s been a market on this site since 1791 when it was used as a Native American trading post on the Mississippi River. It then continued to evolve over the centuries, with French, Spanish, African and Caribbean influences taking hold to create the multicultural melting pot it is today.
Close to the French Quarter, you’ll find the Tremé community. This area dates back to the 1810s, making it one of the oldest neighborhoods in New Orleans, as well as one of the oldest black neighborhoods in the country. It was originally the main center for free people of color, and it remains an important hub for Black and Créole culture. Here, you’ll find the New Orleans Jazz National Park and the New Orleans African American Museum, both worth visiting.
New Orleans’ culture and history
New Orleans has a well-deserved reputation as a party city. Many tourists come from all around the world to experience its carnivals, most notably Mardi Gras. Celebrations officially begin on Epiphany, sometimes known as the Twelfth Night of Christmas, and culminate on Shrove Tuesday. There’s usually at least one parade every day, as well as a whole host of other events to get involved with. The first Mardi Gras was recorded in New Orleans in 1699, and the celebrations have been going strong ever since. The whole city is abuzz during Mardi Gras, and it’s well worth experiencing the color, festivities and partying that happens throughout the period.
Mardi Gras isn’t the only festival worth experiencing, though. The largest of the city’s music festivals is the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, otherwise known as Jazz Fest, a celebration of jazz in all its form in New Orleans, where the genre originated. The festival always features an extensive program of Louisianan and international artists, so you never know - you could see the next big thing right here in New Orleans!
Looking for a party? Venture down to Bourbon Street where the fun never stops. This area is full of bars, cocktails, music, dancing, and all the famous festivals and fairs in New Orleans. From beads to neon lights, the sights and sounds of Bourbon Street are like no other. Take it all in from one of the many street-facing balconies or soak up the buzz on street level. Either way, there is no better place to experience Mardi Gras than in the heart of New Orleans.
New Orleans is also famous for its food, and the French Quarter is the place to find all the tasty treats and traditional delicacies from beignets at Cafe Du Monde to Catfish Po Boys from NOLA Po Boy, and Creole classics like gumbo and jambalaya.
