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.
