What to Do in New Orleans

Mardi Gras

Bead throwing, colorful floats, and elaborate costumes—Mardi Gras is a spectacle for the senses. Carnival season runs from January 6th to Fat Tuesday, but the largest celebrations occur during the two-week lead-up to Fat Tuesday. Festive parties, lively jazz, and dazzling shows line the streets; there's plenty to see and do. If you visit New Orleans outside of Carnival season, check out Mardi Gras World to see how they build the elaborate floats.

The National WWII Museum

A must for history enthusiasts, the National WWII Museum showcases exhibits and artifacts that highlight the American experience in WWII. With full-scale warplanes, preserved WWII clothing, and authentic weaponry, this museum takes you through humanity's darkest hour and will leave you reflective on the past. Interactive displays and 4D movies bring the past to life in this fascinating museum, and another section will be added in 2022.

New Orleans Museum of Art

The oldest fine arts museum in New Orleans, the NOMA contains tens of thousands of objects dating back over 5000 years. Featuring works from France, the Americas, Africa, Japan, and India, this museum is a must for lovers of art and culture. Nature lovers, make sure to stroll through the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, where art meets nature with dazzling results.

What to See in New Orleans

Bourbon Street

Located in the historic French Quarter of New Orleans, Bourbon Street is the home of Mardi Gras. But there's much to do on this lively street, even if you don't visit during Carnival season. With its Creole restaurants, trendy bars, live jazz venues, and souvenir shops, there's plenty of shopping and eating to do on this street. Seeing Bourbon Street is one for the bucket list.

Frenchmen Street

Less crowded and touristy than Bourbon Street, Frenchmen Street is perfect for those looking for a more authentic New Orleans experience. It is a four-block stretch of jazz, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and art galleries. Live music venues like the Spotted Cat and the d.b.a. line the streets, and the Palace Market, open from 7pm to 1am, offers homemade jewelry and art for shoppers.

City Park

For nature enthusiasts looking to get a break from the wild New Orleans culture, there is no better option than City Park. Just north of central New Orleans, City Park offers beautiful landscapes, pleasant paths, and native plants and wildlife. There are many attractions inside the Park as well, including swan boats, a golf course, and a botanical garden.

Where to Stay in New Orleans

French Quarter

Home to the famous Bourbon Street, the French Quarter is the home of Mardi Gras. But there's plenty more to do here than celebrate the Carnival. For example, check out Jackson Square, home to the St. Louis Cathedral and the Cabildo, a government headquarters turned state museum. With cafes, restaurants, and shops interspersed with historic buildings, the French Quarter is a cultural hotspot.

Uptown/Garden Street

Located southwest of the French District, Garden District offers much of the same amenities without the chaos. Ride on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar, pass by historic mansions, then stroll through the Audubon Park and Zoo. Afterwards, dine in a high-end restaurant offering variations on traditional Creole and Cajun cuisine, or grab a bite at a local snack shack.

Marigny

One of New Orleans' trendiest areas, Marigny is perfect for those looking for a hip place to stay. Though there aren't many hotels here, there are several B&Bs and inns to stay in. Visiting Frenchmen Street, a cluster of bars and nightclubs with live jazz and blues music, is a must. But make sure to also pursue the streets for art installations and colorful Creole houses.
