NEW ORLEANS, April 30 - May 3, 2018



Let the good times roll.

Welcome to New Orleans, Louisiana. It’s our second year in the city they call the Big Easy. 

Whether you’re looking for a quiet drink and cigar around the Arts District,  a coffee in one of the quaint bakeries flanking Magazine Street or a ride on the world’s longest-running streetcar. New Orleans has your back.

The French Quarter

This district has so many stories it’s actually a designated National Historic Landmark. It’s the district most popular with tourists – those who want to enjoy a drink or two on Bourbon Street and those who want to check out Royal Street’s upscale art galleries, antique and speciality stores.

Want to see NOLA’s cultural hotspots? have listed all the places you can’t can’t miss seeing here.


The Arts District

With a host of art galleries, fine restaurants and world-class museums, it’s no wonder this is known as the “SoHo of the South”. Grab lunch on Fulton Street and listen to some real NOLA music in Howlin’ Wolf or Republic.


The Central Business District

This is where you’ll find the headquarters of Fortune 500 firms. It’s a booming restaurant and hotel scene, and a great place to do your shopping: hit up Canal Place for Saks Fifth Avenue.


Faubourg Marigny

If you fancy yourself as bit of a hipster, Faubourg Marigny is the spot for you. Hit Frenchmen Street for four blocks of cool, laid-back music bars. Expect jazz, rockabilly, Latin American, and just about everything in between.

Bananas foster, gumbo, and po-boy sandwiches. New Orleans is one of the culinary capitals of the US. The city’s cuisine reflects its Cajun, Creole, and French roots. Be sure to have a beignet – a light, puffy, fried treat caked in powdered sugar paired with a cup of NOLA’s best cafe au lait.
