I've been many places around the world but there is something about New Orleans and love. In fact, it is one of the places I recommend to visit in the United States. With a different culture than anywhere else, delicious cuisine (hello, beignets!), And one of the most exciting festivals in the world, New Orleans is a favorite destination.
If you choose to visit this unique city, I highly recommend taking a tour of the cuisine, wandering the French Quarter (with many views including Jackson Square and Cabildo, where the Louisiana Purchase was signed in 1803), sipping Hurricane, and listening to some popular jazz.

Before booking your trip, take a look at the hotels in the Warehouse District – one of my favorite parts of the city as it is close to the French Quarter where you can easily walk … but still have a good night's sleep. vendors! Major opportunities in the Warehouse district include Old No. 1. 77 Hotel & Chandlery or Ace Hotel.
The best time to visit New Orleans is from February to May when the weather is cool and there are many different events going on (Mardi Gras is a bucket list experience for everyone to experience. at least once!). Personally, I'm avoiding the heat of summer (July and August) as the heat of the heat is not easily evaporated and humid.
However, if you go down with a little humidity as the seasons start to change, October can be a great time to get your head around. Or, if you haven't thought of cold weather – visit in December or January when many crazy people have not been hit yet.
If you are on a budget, stick to summer or fall. Just keep in mind that it will be more humid and there are always a few chances that the storm is over.
