New Orleans

Louisiana
'The Big Easy'

For the last 300 years, New Orleans has been one of the great cultural gems of the world. Its a place where the locals’ laissez-faire hospitality and friendliness attract visitors from all over the world. With its classic architecture draped in Spanish moss, there are few other places so enchanting.

Food and music define this town’s way of life. Both are intrinsic to the fabric and history of New Orleans and the cultural effervescence that permeates it.

Generations of the greatest and most influential American musicians have been born and bred here, while many others have been adopted by the town. The rich historical mix of heritages in the Crescent City — African, European, Caribbean — makes it utterly unique. Every neighborhood in the city has its own special flavor and scene.
