    The French Quarter

    French Quarter, New Orleans, LA 70116
    117 reviews

    This is one city that I could live in. As a tourist I don't recommend staying right IN the French Quarter unless you can sleep through anything or are under 25 years old. The entertainment is amazing. The food is sensational. We opted for the Ritz Carlton and had one of the best meals there !

    French Market

    400 Elysian Fields
    52 reviews

    The French Market serves a unique variety of Cajun specialties like raw oysters, gator burgers and super hot Cajun sauces. They also serve wonderful souvenirs such as jewelry, home decor, and assorted masks. I highly recommend going there, particularly for foodies who want to try Cajun food! Bonus tip: try the fresh strawberry lemonade near the front of the French ...

    Pat O'Brien's Bar

    718 St. Peter St., New Orleans, LA 70116
    51 reviews

    New Orleans is well known for creating and inspiring many a alcoholic drink, and one of the most famous of these is the Pat O’s Original Hurricane. A tall, red, rum-filled drink served frozen or on the rocks, the Hurricane packs quite the punch and is a quick way to jump start a night of partying. Also, there are many ...

    New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival

    The Race Track/ Fair Grounds
    38 reviews Over the years Jazz Fest has received many honors, including being named the Festival of the Year four times by Pollstar magazine. The 2004 event marks the 35th anniversary of Jazz Fest, which the Wall Street Journal says “showcases a wider, deeper lineup of essential American musical styles than any festival in the nation…” and which Life magazine has ...

    Rum House The

    3128 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA
    6 reviews

    You can trust that any place called “The Rum House” will have a fine and wide selection of hand-picked rums to please anyone’s tastes. But the true gems of this Magazine Street establishment are the tacos. Be good to yourself and order the Taco Trifecta, which allows you to select three different tacos to make your hungry belly happy. My ...

    Maple Leaf Bar

    8 reviews

    Located next door to Jacques-Imo’s restaurant (mentioned elsewhere in this guide), the Maple Leaf is one of the longest continuously-run operations of New Orleans’ music clubs with live performances seven nights a week. Rebirth Brass Band has a standing show here every Tuesday night, and they are one of the most consistently-entertaining acts playing New Orleans’ traditional music. Here, you ...

    Little Tropical Isle

    2 reviews

    While I would normally recommend avoiding Bourbon Street like the plague since it's generally an over-priced, inauthentic tourist trap, I make one exception for this. In 1984, Tropical Isle nightclub founders Pam Fortner and Earl Bernhardt concocted a delicious and potent melon-flavored cocktail they called the “Hand Grenade,” which has since been marketed as a proprietary trade secret that only ...

    Magazine Street

    Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA 70130
    38 reviews

    I'm not a shopper, but this is a great place to get away from the tourist traps in the French Quarter and still feel like you're getting a taste of NOLA. You'll still have the crowds, but not the drunken, wandering the street, loud crowds like on Bourbon Street. Stop by Sucre, you'll love it.

    Bourbon Street

    Bourbon Street, New Orleans, LA 70130
    144 reviews

    You can't help but have fun when you're on Beale St., and the food here is unmatched, in my opinion. The chefs here could make mud taste good.

    Jackson Square

    Decatur Street, New Orleans, LA
    83 reviews

    Some of the best times I've had were here at Jackson Square. It's one of the my favorite places to slow down and enjoy life. Locals, tourists, artists and performers all gather here during the afternoon, creating a unique New Orleans experience.

    Went for a drink after dinner hoping for some good music. ..Not disappointed as there was a group playing jazz and tap dancing. Very nice place and fun atmosphere.

    Bacchanal Fine Wine & Spirits

    600 Poland Avenue, New Orleans, LA
    9 reviews

    Bywater's favorite mullet-business, Bacchanal's street facing shop is a tiny wine store. But in the back? Magic. Pick up a bottle up front, grab a pair of glasses and walk out into an enormous back yard full of mismatched lawn furniture, tables and chairs, twinkle lights, tiki torches, and a small stage where local musicians play live music most nights ...

    Preservation Hall

    726 St Peter St, New Orleans, Louisiana
    26 reviews

    One of the oldest and most famous jazz halls of all time. No booze, no shinanigan, only jazz.

    St. Louis Cathedral

    615 Pere Antoine Alley, New Orleans, LA 70116-3234
    59 reviews

    St. Louis Cathedral is one of the few things I really loved in NOLA. Coming upon it, I felt like a little kid at Disney World seeing the Cinderella's Castle for the first time. ;) It's gorgeous, and has a great history.

    Spotted Cat Music Club

    623 Frenchmen Street, New Orleans, LA
    27 reviews

    If you had to pick only one spot to go on Frenchmen St. - God forbid - then this should be your choice. It's a divey joint but it always delivers so much musical talent. The later in the night it gets, the rowdier it becomes.

    Audubon Park

    14 reviews

    Boasting “3 centuries of history and 6 blocks of shopping,” the French Market has a lot going on, pretty much all the time. Situated right off the Riverfront street car line, it’s a combined Farmer’s Market and Flea Market filled out with local artists and craftsmen selling their wares, all mixed in together and under one roof. And every Saturday ...

    Audubon Zoo

    6500 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA 70118-4848
    53 reviews

    Wave to the gorillas and they might wave back. Take funny pictures with the Komodo Dragon and Velociraptor statues, pet an elephant, and try to avoid feeding the Asian Sea Otters (though they'll adorably beg for food).

    The world’s largest collection of mature live oaks—some more than 600 years old—thrives within 1,300-acre City Park. Find a spot to picnic under the shade of these majestic trees, take a horseback ride, or wander the sculpture park.
