A blossoming cultural hub, New Orleans is bursting with the sights, sounds and tastes to keep every visitor happy, from single travellers to families. The city’s famous jazz roots draws music lovers from all over the world to enjoy its live music performances, as well as numerous street festivals from local band events to its vibrant Mardi Gras parade.

A choice of museums and galleries also pay homage to the art and history of the region. Other must-dos include a riverboat tour on the Mississippi, a streetcar ride and sampling fresh seafood, as well as dancing the night away on Bourbon Street.
