Trip by Skyscanner's New Orleans City Guide offers the best personalized guide to NOLA. The old New Orleans motto, “laissez les bons temps rouler,” French for “let the good times roll,” captures the essence of this Louisiana gem. From the biggest party in the U.S. to its heavy colonial-era French influence, The Big Easy is perennially a favorite among travelers. Most visitors spend a lot of time in the charming French Quarter, a neighborhood that still has its original colonial-era architecture intact. In the French Quarter you will find the aptly named Bourbon Street, home to numerous bars, nightclubs, and other nighttime institutions. Close by you will find Jackson Square, a monument to President Andrew Jackson who in 1815 led U.S. forces to victory against the British in the Battle of New Orleans. Across the street is a true New Orleans institution: Café du Monde, home to the fabled beignets (a French doughnut) and coffee. Every February masked revelers fill the streets to be a part of the annual Mardi Gras celebration, which is the biggest of its kind in the U.S. New Orleans’ cuisine is just another reason why this city is so unique, with distinctive dishes like muffuletta, jambalaya, and gumbo headlining menus. Hotels are available in every part of the city, but just be prepared for a loud night if you elect to stay in the French Quarter. Although New Orleans has suffered from Hurricane Katrina and now the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, the city’s lively history and its Cajun charm keeps tourists coming back for more.
