A Party for the Whole Family in New Orleans
Though New Orleans is a city full of many outstanding institutions, you will often find the most culture right in the middle of the street! A mash-up of several prominent cultures, including Spanish, French, Caribbean, and American South, New Orleans provides tourists with an experience that is uniquely its own. Stroll through Jackson Square in the French Quarter and you may see lively street performers and local artists selling their beautiful works on the sidewalk. Take the kids and grab a famous (and delicious) beignet from Cafe Du Monde on the river, and stroll through the French Market, a unique open-air shopping mall in the French Quarter featuring crafts, art, collectables, accessories, local food and drink, and more!
Take a step back in time and listen to the 32-note calliope playing live on the Steamboat Natchez, adoring the Mississippi River with its historic charm. The Steamboat Natchez is one of the few authentic steamboats remaining in the United States, and offers two-hour rides up and down the Mississippi River, a perfect excursion for visitors of all ages. These cruises include live jazz with either brunch or dinner, and features delicious local favorites like Creole creamed spinach, grits, and beignets on the menu. The best part-the kids get to visit the engine room!
