Mardi Gras falls on February 17 this year and marks the end of the Carnival season, during which you can eat your fill of king cake and deck yourself out in beads. Parades officially begin two weeks earlier, on February 6, as the city’s various krewes turn out to present flashy and memorable parade floats. During kickoff weekend, visitors can also participate in Family Gras, a free (and family-friendly) music festival featuring live entertainment, food vendors and a kids’ tent.
New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival
Taking place over the span of two weekends in late spring, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is a celebration of NOLA’s music and culture. Each year, the festival draws huge artists like Bruce Springsteen, John Legend and Elton John as well as a slew of local talent to perform across multiple stages. Attendees can feast their eyes on the artisan craftwork available at the festival, and they can just plain feast on the delicious food served up by local vendors.
New Orleans has many distinct specialties, and it does them in spectacular fashion. Start with the storied French Quarter, the oldest neighborhood in the city and a designated National Historic Landmark. Explore stately Jackson Square before spending the evening on Bourbon Street. Check out the Garden District, so-called for its gorgeous Victorian-style mansions occupying each block, as well as NOLA’s “cities of the dead” — above-ground cemeteries built to avoid the city’s soggy earth. Along the way, be sure to sample the local flavors in everything from gumbo to jambalaya to beignets, delicacies that are best eaten in New Orleans. And if you’re going down any of the major streets, opt to take a historic streetcar to ride in style.
National World War II Museum
The National WWII Museum is a lauded institution dedicated to preserving the history of the contributions made to the Allies’ efforts by the U.S. Its collection of more than 100,000 artifacts includes aircraft, weaponry and photographs as well as an immersive submarine experience and a fantastic 4D film.
Kids and adults alike take great pleasure in visiting the celebrated Audubon Zoo, home to thousands of exotic animals. Popular exhibits include Jaguar Jungle, which houses the majestic cats; the Louisiana Swamp Exhibit, which teaches visitors about the state’s native habitats; and Monkey Hill, a lively playground for kids.
Historic New Orleans Collection
Functioning as a museum, research center as well as publisher, the Historic New Orleans Collection offers a comprehensive exploration of the city’s history. The free museum comprises multiple buildings that house the ever-changing array of exhibitions, which cover everything from fine art to Andrew Jackson.
Though not the most glamorous food, the po’boy is Louisiana’s archetypal sub sandwich. This regional specialty is served on almost every corner; the classic style is meat (usually roast beef) or fried seafood topped with rich gravy, dressed with lettuce, tomatoes, mayo and what have you, all on a fluffy baguette.
Indulgent any way you look at them, beignets were brought to New Orleans by French colonists in the 1700s and comprise deep-fried squares of choux dough covered with a mound of powdered sugar. These pastries are served piping hot and can come with a variety of fillings, from jam to blue crab.
Arguably less famous but no less iconic to New Orleans than the po’boy, the muffuletta is dished out in large portions, so come hungry and bring a friend. You’ll get a mouth-watering variety of Italian cured meat, cheese and a spicy olive salad stuffed between two slices of soft Sicilian bread.
NOLA’s best-known street is party central for visitors; the heart of the French Quarter comes alive at night with revelers looking to get their drinks on and make some new friends. Once the sun goes down, Bourbon Street is crowded with lively bars, historic establishments, street performers and great people-watching.
Established in 1977, Tipitina’s is one of New Orleans’ most venerable music venues and serves as a memorial to Professor Longhair, one of the city’s most influential musicians. Music legends of all kinds have played here, and you’ll be able to come catch a performance almost every day of the week.
Often recommended by locals as the best place in NOLA for great live music, Frenchmen Street lives up to its reputation with a heady mix of bars and clubs, each with their own performers. You can pop in and out along the street and hear everything from swing to jazz to accordion music.
Jazz music has its roots in New Orleans, the city hosts world-class shows and is home to historically rich destinations. The culture has an eclectic mix African, Caribbean and European influences. If this is a family trip, consider visiting the Audubon Zoo, the Storyland Amusement Park and the Aquarium of the Americas.

Take a trip of the Canal Streetcar, the line connects to some major art galleries and tourist destinations.
