A Wide Choice Of Location

Charm and French ease are steeped deep in the city of New Orleans so you have a wide choice of vacation rentals to choose from. It all depends on the kind of experience you're after. Want to saunter out onto the balcony and looking out at the streets below from your vacation home? Would you love to have the fresh smell of beignets trying to waft to you while you bask on a garden terrace?

Vacationing in New Orleans

The “Big Easy”

There’s a reason why New Orleans has earned the nickname "Big Easy”. New York may never sleep but it’s New Orleans that never winds down on its parties. Well-known for its constant nightlife, a rich tradition of live-music scene and its Creole-inspired cuisine, New Orleans is truly a melting pot of French, African and American cultures. It’s biggest draw, of course, is the late-winter carnival Mardi Gras, with dawn-to-duskstreet partiers, parades and intricate costumes.

Multiple Districts, Multiple Cultures

With so many cultural and historical influences, New Orleans has a “quarter” for everything. Located on the banks of the winding Mississippi, the “American Quarter” is directly north and west of the river and includes Canal Street, which divides uptown from downtown. Of course, there is also the famed “FrenchQuarter”, the Central Business District, and Bayou St. John, to name a a few. Besides the beautiful French and Southern American influences on architecture, you’ll also find the streets lined with 800 year old oaks, low-hanging willows and lazy Cypress trees.

Getting Around New Orleans

Moving around the city goes faster and with much less hassle if you wither walk, bike or take public transport. Cars are more of a hassle in a city this tightly packed. Those staying in the French Quarter can certainly walk everywhere. You can hail a taxi if the hour gets too late but rapid transit and buses as well as charming streetcars are easy to hop on and hop off of. The best way is undoubtedly renting a bike from rental companies in the French Quarter or Marigny.

New Orleans for Families

New Orleans is the place to be for families with kids of all ages.

You can also check out the Louisiana Children’s Museum, with over 100 hands-on exhibits and chow down at Johnny Po’ Boys, where the portions are large and the Creole-style food is cheap.

First off, plan to come in late winter (around early March) and you’ll catch the non-stop party and revelry that is Mardi Gras. Expect the streets of the French Quarter to be brightly lit and full of the smells of incredible “Nawlins” street food. Speaking of which, you can catch a cooking class at Cookin’ Cajun and learn how to whip up authentic Louisiana fare from expert chefs. There are also plenty of outdoor music venues with live music streaming out in the evenings.

New Orleans for Nature Lovers

The weather is always right on in New Orleans — which is what makes the city so perfect for exploration on foot or bike.
