New Orleans: a City Like No Other

by Bob's Cruises and Tours - New Orleans, La, Usa -

New Orleans is one of those “you have to see it to believe it destinations” The city is really hard to describe as it is so diverse and different than any other major American City. With that being said, it's no surprise that New Orleans is one of the top ten most visited cites in the U.S., hosting close to 10 million visitors a year.

New Orleans: A City Like No Other

 

The city itself is as vibrant as they come and truly a traveller's dream. The city features stylish boutique hotels, vibrant bar scene, live music, vintage shops, unique restaurants, and some of the best people-watching in the world.

As a traveller, if you're looking for rich culture, vibrant night life, and amazing southern hospitality, look no further as the “BIG EASY “will deliver on all those levels and more.

Upon touching down in New Orleans, plan your time wisely as the city is jam-packed with things to do and see.

 

Below you will find some suggestions on how to spend your days and nights in the amazing city of New Orleans.

  1. Escape to City Park – The 1300 acre park set in the middle of New Orleans is the perfect place to relax, take a stroll, and escape the hectic city of New Orleans.
  2. Have a Hurricane – Try the original hurricane at Pat O'Brien’s and sing along to the music in the duelling piano bar.
  3. Walk on Bourbon – Of course, there is much more to do on Bourbon than just walk, however, one of the best ways to experience it is grabbing a hand grenade and taking a stroll.
  4. Have a coffee at Café du Mode - Take in the early morning bakery smells as you enjoy a cup of Joe at one of the world’s most famous cafés.
  5. Take a ride on the St. Charles street car – This is a great way to see the sights outside the French quarter and really live the Creole culture. The 13-mile, 90-minute ride takes you from Canal Street through the garden district and beyond.
  6. The French Quarter – A living, breathing museum, the quarter will dazzle you with the wrought iron balconies, St. Louis Cathedral, and unique shopping opportunities.
  7. Boat ride on the Mississippi – Half a mile wide and 200 feet deep, the mighty Mississippi boat ride is must. The evening boat or ferry rides are best as you get to experience New Orleans when it’s all lit up.
  8. Julia Street – Rich with history and culture dating back to the Louisiana Purchase, this street offers a wide array of attractions including art galleries, museums, and mid 19th century architecture.
  9. Eat – Bring your appetite, as some of the world’s best chefs make their home in New Orleans. A couple can’t-miss spots are the Court of two sisters and Emeril’s.
  10. Music – The big easy is the place to be for music lovers as you can find a plethora of options, just don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes.
