New Orleans

Right on the iconic Mississippi River, in the southeastern part of Louisiana, is New Orleans. Famous for its unique blend of cultures, its festive atmosphere, its vibrant nightlife and music scene, the city has become a popular destination for those looking for a city getaway to take a break from the daily routine.

When one thinks of New Orleans, one often thinks of its extravagant carnival and festive Bourbon Street. But there is way more to the city! Founded by the French colonists, New Orleans has a very interesting past filled with historic battles and cultural events that you can learn more about at the many local museums. One should also not hesitate to explore the city on one of the oldest transport systems in the country! And if you’re an amateur of the paranormal, you should definitely check out New Orleans’ darker side by taking part in a walking tour around the cemetery and other voodoo spots in the city.
