Arrive in New Orleans and find a city draped in a rich blanket of history, beauty and intrigue...
The port city enjoys a position on the mighty Mississippi River. The spirit of the people of New Orleans did not stay down for long after Hurricane Katrina devastated the city in 2005. This is a party town after all and the entertainment scene has come back stronger and louder than ever before.
Holidays in New Orleans can start the moment you arrive at Louis Armstrong International Airport (MSY) near the Louisiana city, which is also known as The Big Easy – mostly thanks to its laidback attitude and sultry music scene.
Most visitors make the historic French Quarter their first stop. Here you'll find party central Bourbon Street, which is home to a thriving jazz and blues scene. Don't forget to look up when you stroll through the French Quarter to photograph the galleries and the ornate ironwork that frames them.
If you're not easily spooked you can visit voodoo museums or take voodoo tours around New Orleans. The religious practices are alive here and came from African traditions that were adopted by French and Spanish settlers.
Hop on one of the city's famous streetcars and be transported to another time. The unique form of transport feels especially apt when you're dropped off in the Garden District, a pretty neighbourhood filled with traditional southern mansions and large gardens.
There's a diverse range of accommodation and eateries for tourists, and families, groups and couples will all feel equally welcome in this friendly city.
Many holidaymakers choose to take in the sights, sounds and smells of tantalising New Orleans as part of a road trip that incorporates some of the south's other treasures. You could consider combining your trip with a visit to Houston in Texas, or Memphis, a little further north, or spend time in the lovely southern state of Georgia.
A melting pot of cultures, the inimitable and restless New Orleans is a city made for good times. Whatever your passion, be it food, music, history or art, the Big Easy has it all.Read moreabout Why you should visit New Orleans now
