New Orleans

New Orleans – NOLA – The Big Easy – whatever you call it you will never forget it

Whether you are going for a convention or for a sporting event, Mardi Gras or a pre-cruise departure, a romantic getaway or a trip to party with friends….New Orleans is one of the most unique and authentic cities that you will ever visit. Visit once and you will likely want to return again and again….or NEVER

I believe that there are a handful of cities that every American should experience (New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Washington D.C. and New Orleans). For sure there are many other wonderful cities to visit but in the U.S. I believe that these are the 5 most memorable, and for my money New Orleans may be right at the top

Whether you are engaging the street vendors in Jackson Square, taking a street car through the Garden District, Seeing the Neville Brothers at Tipatina’s or watching a parade during Mardi Gras the city is alive and truly One of a kind!
