A city rich with history, New Orleans has a lot to offer its visitors. This is your chance to have an authentic beignet and cup of coffee at the world-famous Cafe Du Monde. Or if you’re interested in the nightlife and local live music scene, Bourbon Street isn’t to be missed. And don’t forget to take a leisurely stroll around the beautiful French Quarter.
The official New Orleans tourism Web site. Find information about food and restaurants, music and nightlife, museums, shopping, family-friendly activities, and tours of the city. Here are some suggested highlights:
• Visit the “Living With Hurricanes: Katrina and Beyond” exhibit at the Louisiana State Museum. Five years after Katrina hit the city, this exhibit opened to document stories of survival and rebuilding. More information about the exhibit can be found here.
• Take a tour of the French Quarter or some New Orleans cemeteries, or maybe you’re up for a swamp tour or a haunted tour. Click here for a list of tour companies in the city.
• The Zephyrs, New Orleans’ Minor League Baseball AAA team (affiliate of the Florida Marlins), will be hosting the Round Rock Express June 21 through 24 if you’re looking to catch a game. Zephyrs Field is less than 10 minutes from downtown New Orleans. Check out the team’s Web site here.
