New Orleans has an aura all its own. Steeped in Cajun and Creole influences and seasoned by the salty characters passing through her bustling port, New Orleans is an American jewel. Awash in a circus of colors and sweetened with Dixieland jazz, the French Quarter and the Garden District offer some of the most photographed and painted streetscapes in America. Take a streetcar ride or a stroll to the French Market, Café du Monde or Jackson Square. Venture down to the Central Business District, and snap back to today!
