Travelling to New Orleans, United States of America
The largest city in the state of Louisiana, New Orleans is a melting pot in more ways than one. Culturally and ethnically diverse, this port city is a mix of French, Spanish, Creole, Cajun influences. These influences are evident in everything from New Orleans’ unique architecture to its incredible food, which isn’t surprising when you consider its colourful past; settled as a French Colony, then transferred to Spain, then sold to the Unites States.
Eat your way around the city with delicious deep-fried and sugar-dusted beignets, oyster or shrimp stuffed po’ boy sandwiches, a plate of traditional red beans and rice, or a delicious bowl of jambalaya.
The French Quarter is the oldest part of New Orleans and an absolute must-see for any visitor; its colourful facades are up to 300 years old. Stroll down Bourbon Street and Royal Street and visit cafes, restaurants and jazz spots for a true New Orleans experience, visit Jackson Square, a picturesque plaza in the heart of the French Quarter, and St Louis Cathedral, a beautiful three-steepled Catholic cathedral on Jackson Square’s north side.
Louisiana is considered the birthplace of Jazz and there are many Jazz clubs around the city; The Spotted Cat is a firm local favourite. Music festivals take place year-round in New Orleans, and if you’re lucky, you may even see a Second Line go by, a seemingly impromptu jazz brass band parade through the streets, a New Orleans tradition dating back to the 19th century.
