New Orleans

New Orleans is located in southeastern Louisiana along the Mississippi River. The city is bordered by Lake Pontchartrain to the north and the Gulf of Mexico to the east and is coextensive with Orleans Parish. It is named after Philippe II, Duke of Orléans, Regent of France, and is one of the oldest cities in the United States. New Orleans is known for its multicultural heritage as well as its music and cuisine. It is considered the birthplace of jazz.

The most celebrated and historic core of the city – including the Faubourg Marigny, French Quarter, Central Business District, Warehouse and Arts District, Magazine Street, Garden District, Audubon Park and Zoo and St. Charles Avenue – not only remains intact, both physically and spiritually, but is thriving. The cultural riches, sensual indulgences and unparalleled service that define the New Orleans experience continue to flourish, as they have for centuries. We are open, fully prepared and eager to welcome all of our visitors again. The historic and cultural experience that attracts more than 10 million people to New Orleans each year is as rich, charming and welcoming as ever. There are more than 28,000 hotel rooms here, and our famed restaurants and music clubs are humming. In February 2006, the 150th anniversary of Mardi Gras was a coming out party for the city, which has since enjoyed equally historic festivals, sporting and cultural events, conventions and meetings. It’s no surprise that the New York Times has named New Orleans the “Comeback of the Year” and both Orbitz and Travel + Leisure have chosen it as one of their top destinations for 2007. Come see and celebrate for yourself. Your visit right now ensures you the unique, cultural travel experience only New Orleans can deliver. Even more, it means you are taking part in something important, something historic: celebrating the Rebirth of New Orleans.  

With all of its facets, a New Orleans experience is never anything but completely authentic. The city’s marvelous eccentricities are born from a rich heritage, respectfully and indelibly woven into the fabric of everyday life here. New Orleans doesn’t act a part for its visitors; it simply welcomes everyone with open arms to a world all its own.  The city is full of complexities and contradictions, but its multifaceted personality somehow blends into an offbeat harmony that defines the city’s unmistakable charm.  Like the most gracious Southern hostess, New Orleans welcomes visitors with a genuine hospitality and singular flair. The city’s intricate mélange of cultures creates a chameleon destination; with so many aspects to its character, the city can fulfill every agenda with equal enthusiasm.
