French and Spanish influences are visibly evident in the history, architecture, and food of New Orleans.
- Mississippi River: The riverfront area serves as a bustling port and is the launching point of scenic riverboat tours that offer great views of the city. If you prefer dry land, then Crescent Park is the spot for picturesque walking and biking trails.
- The French Quarter: The Quarter is a must-see zone on any trip to New Orleans. It blends culture and history in one bustling area where people-watching is its own adventure. Walk down Bourbon Street for live music and a host of bars serving the city's signature Hurricane drink.
- Jackson Square: Local artists gather in Jackson Square to showcase their artwork. The area is home to restaurants, museums, shops and street performers.
