Why New Orleans?
For soaking up culture, you can't beat New Orleans. Established by French colonists and named after the Duke of Orleans, the French influence is unmistakable. Spanish and other European influences have also had a notable effect on the architecture, cuisine and music, creating a cultural melting-pot. If you're in New Orleans in February, don't miss the Mardi Gras ('Fat Tuesday' in French!), a colourful, vibrant carnival described by New Orleanians as the 'greatest free show on earth'. The birthplace of jazz, the Big Easy's distinctive Cajun and blues music will keep you entertained while you treat your palate to Creole and Cajun food, with seafood a particular speciality.
When you've finished immersing yourself in the culture, there's plenty to see and do in the area. The French Quarter is the perfect place for a stroll, followed by a cruise around the port in an authentic steamboat. The elaborate mausoleums in the city's cemeteries make for an unusual day out, while there are many museums for arts lovers, history enthusiasts and families alike. From parks and plantations to historic homes and zoos, why not discover what else the Big Easy has to offer?
