New Orleans Holidays
Shrimp po’boys, live jazz music, Mardi Gras beads swaying in the trees and from power lines… New Orleans exudes character, charm and soul. Explore the French Quarter with its wrought-iron balconies and abundant bars and restaurants, sample delicious fusion cuisine, and visit in February for the world-famous carnival. To experience the best of it, spend a few days here – soaking up the round-the-clock nightlife and laid-back Mississippi River living – before exploring the rest of Louisiana and the Deep South.
Popular New Orleans Holidays
The Big Easy is the very heart of the Deep South. It’s where the Mardi Gras really takes hold, where musicians line the streets – playing everything from jazz to blues – and where Creole and Cajun cuisine are at their best (and most deep fried). Flight Centre can really help you get under the skin of NOLA with its range of tailor-made holidays to New Orleans called Journeys. With flights, hotels, transfers and car hire included, you can explore the bustle of Bourbon Street, admire Jackson Square and the iconic St Louis Cathedral, take a jazz cruise on the Mississippi River, and be compelled by the fascinating above-ground graves in the many cemeteries across the city.
