Not only are the parties legendary, but some of the best music to come out of the United States originated here. You’ll witness some of the most mesmerizing performances right on the street. The local clubs and theatres are home also hosting some amazing musical shows, as well.
If you’re a foodie you are in for a serious treat. Boasting some scrumptious Southern cooking, the city has comfort foods down to science. New Orleans has a distinctive blend of French, African and American influences, and it shows in the food. Seafood lovers will appreciate their famous jambalayas, gumbos, and crawfish dishes. Brave travellers can even try some alligator!
Travel tip: Slow and steady wins the race! The story of the tortoise and the hare is not just a fun fable. If you give it your all the first night in town you will not make it through the weekend. Much like Las Vegas, the Mardi Gras capital of the United States brings out the animal in some people, and this can end poorly. The city’s nightlife is electric and filled with people having the time of the lives; it can be very easy to get carried away. Try pacing yourself if possible and eating lots of that delicious Southern cuisine.
