New Orleans Area

One of the country's oldest and most interesting cities, New Orleans is known as a culturally rich and vibrant center of fun, festivity, fine dining and history. Landmarks and historically significant architecture abound, as do sights, attractions and activities for families. Discover the restaurants, clubs and centuries-old buildings of the world-famous French Quarter and the grand homes of the Garden District. Ride a streetcar along beautiful, oak-draped St. Charles Avenue. Take the kids to the Audubon Zoo and Aquarium, visit the National World War II Museum, and stop for amazing views of paddlewheelers and freighters on the mighty Mississippi River. Take a drive south to Venice, and charter an offshore fishing boat for a day of trophy fishing on the Gulf of Mexico. Or drive just minutes out of New Orleans to Chalmette and visit the site of the 1815 Battle of New Orleans. Visit the area during Mardi Gras or during the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival to enjoy major international events you will never forget.  If you're hungry for Louisiana seafood, you won't want to miss stops along the Jefferson Parish Oyster Trail in Lafitte, Kenner, Metairie, Gretna and Harahan.
