An Elegant Clash of Old and Nouveau in New Orleans

December 18, 2017 by


Some say New Orleans is the only foreign city Americans can go to without a passport. A melting pot of various cultures formed the city’s unique identity, which may appear foreign, but that in itself makes it distinctly American. No other American city can boast having its own unmistakable music, food, festivals, traditions, and even superstitions to the extent of New Orleans.

Each of NOLA’s neighborhoods offer a different flavor and experience. In the French Quarter, tourists partake in a nonstop party, whereas in the Garden District and Uptown neighborhoods, locals and visitors alike stroll along quiet, tree-lined streets with historic mansions, some of which are now B&Bs.

Suffice it to say, there are many ways in New Orleans to laissez les bons temps rouler — let the good times roll.
