Things to do in New Orleans
There are a few major things to do in New Orleans that you just have to take in. Explore the Crown Jewel of New Orleans, the French Quarter. This historic neighbourhood blends old-world charm with modern attractions. See the French Market, the boutiques, cafes and bars, the antiques and just enjoy exploring the narrow streets. See points of interest like Jackson Square with St. Louis Cathedral, take a lazy steamboat tour, and visit historic homes like the 1850 House. Beyond the French Quarter, find top sights in the energetic Downtown district full of shopping, restaurants and creative flair. And explore unforgettable natural sights with a visit to the bayou.
Dining Out
American holidays to New Orleans offer a wide range of dining options. In the French Quarter discover everything from traditional Creole cuisine to modern fusion fare. The flavours on offer are as eclectic as New Orleans itself. You can find everything from al fresco fare, to casual bistros, romantic restaurants and fine dining. The city’s French-Creole heritage can be discovered just through its cuisine; several famous restaurants specialise in this delicious, classic New Orleans fare. No visit would be complete without trying a po-boy, New Orleans’ own scrumptious sandwich often made with oyster, shrimp or beef. The city’s thriving Vietnamese community means the streets are dotted with authentic eastern eateries. Seafood is king here and wherever you go you’ll find sumptuous fish fresh from the waters nearby.
New Orleans is a shopping mecca, from big name brands to unique little stores. Go bargain hunting at The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk and Lakeside Shopping Centre. Discover something different in the boutiques and shops of Magazine Street and Royal Street, or explore the city’s many charming markets. Request a LTFS voucher at time of purchase and get a tax refund at the airport. So American holidays to New Orleans are really perfect for shopaholics.
Beyond the city
New Orleans itself is a relatively small bijou network of historic streets, but it’s close to some great activities. You shouldn’t miss out on exploring the surrounding swamplands, such as a tour to see the local wildlife. The Bayou and Lake Pontchartrain are popular attractions, and don’t miss the views of the Mississippi with a laid-back boat ride. Discover beautiful beach towns by the banks of the Mississippi, and the Gulf of Mexico. Most beaches are a 2-4 hour drive from the city, a doable day trip if planned well. Try sun-kissed Holly Beach, spectacular Grand Isle or Biloxi Beach, the closest beach to New Orleans.
