New Orleans

The Big Easy

At night the streets come alive with the sound of music. Best known for its vibrant, live music scene, this city has over 60 bars in just the French Quarter. You will hear live music playing at more than half of them. If you like the pulse and energy of big crowds, plan your trip during Marti Gras. If you want the city to yourself and enjoy a low-key atmosphere, travel during the off season in the fall. Second only to the music is the food. If you dine in or take out, there is no wrong way to eat food in the Big Easy. Prepare to have your mouth water from the moment you arrive. It is known for its spicy, singular cuisine that reflects its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures. Southern hospitality is the heart and soul of the city, and you will feel the love as you pass the locals on the streets.
