New Orleans, LA

New Orleans is a Louisiana city on the Mississippi River near the Gulf of Mexico. Nicknamed the “Big Easy,” it’s known for its vibrant live-music scene and spicy, singular cuisine, reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African, and American cultures. Embodying its festive spirit is Mardi Gras, the late-winter carnival famed for costumed parades. Be sure to visit the historic Preservation Hall, a renowned jazz venue for all ages.
