New OrleansCategory: Urban
New Orleans is a major port city in Louisiana and is one of the U.S.’s most captivating cities, a melting pot of European, Caribbean and African origins that blend into a vivacious, culturally- and historically-rich hub. Warm weather and a thriving social scene make any time of the year tourist season.
Bourbon Street in downtown is the site of the annual Mardi Gras festival as well many jazz clubs, street vendors and more. Since it was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the city has been rebuilding and rebounding, but remains as entertaining as ever.
