Welcome to New Orleans!
Here, in this little corner of the American South, where European traditions blend with Caribbean influences, the history is as colorful as the local architecture; the food is the stuff of legend.
Haitian and African creoles developed an exotic, spicy cuisine and were instrumental in creating jazz and zydeco. Our street names are French and Spanish, our Creole architecture comes in a carnival of tropical colors and our voodoo is Caribbean import. The magic is irresistible!
We celebrate almost anything in the Big Easy. Laissez les bons temps rouler- let the good times roll- is more than a reminder of our French heritage; it’s a way of life that began three centuries ago. The cultural riches, sensual indulgences and unparalleled service that define the New Orleans experience continue to flourish as they have for centuries. The most celebrated and historic core of the city- including the Fauborg Marigny, French quarter, Central Business District, Warehouse and Arts District, Magazine street, Audubon Park and Zoo, Garden District and St. Charles Avenue is thriving.
New Orleans is a community of growth, love, hope, beauty and neighbors helping neighbors.
