New Orleans
closeThanks to its French roots and blend of different cultures, New Orleans has a distinct character which sets it apart from the rest of the country. This is manifested in its unique architecture, food and music.
Despite the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the city's historic French Quarter is as lively as ever before, especially during Mardi Gras, the famous carnival celebrations that are held here each year.
