The gentle, slow and easy-going way of life in New Orleans has earned it the nickname of ‘The Big Easy,’ and the inviting, laid-back city offers a range of attractions, activities, and entertainment for all tastes.
The French Quarter (le Vieux Carré), also known as ‘The Quarter,' is the oldest neighborhood in the city of New Orleans and steeped in history and heritage. Dating back to 1718, the district was established by Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville and grew around the central square of the Vieux Carré. Home to magnificent historic buildings, cathedrals, and famous jazz clubs, the French Quarter has a history that dates back 200 years and has been designated a National Historic Landmark. Resting at the heart of the French Quarter is the 18th-century historic Jackson Square, formerly known as the ‘Place d’Armes’ and later renamed in honor of the Battle of New Orleans hero Andrew Jackson. Overlooking the Mississippi River, the square is surrounded by famous old buildings, including the St. Louis Cathedral, the Presbytere and Cabildo Museums and the stunning Pontalba Apartments, as well as a plethora of restaurants, museums, cafés and art galleries.
Tucked between St Charles Avenue and Magazine Street in uptown New Orleans, the historic Garden District is a famous neighborhood that is home to a beautifully preserved collection of antebellum mansions, immaculate gardens, and tree-lined avenues. Established by Barthelemy Lafon in 1832 as an upper-class settlement for new American residents to the city, the area flourished as lavish homes were built in the Italianate, Greek Revival and Victorian styles on large plots surrounded by spectacular gardens. Today, the district is home to several movie stars and celebrities, the famous Lafayette Cemetery # 1 and some boutiques and excellent restaurants, including the renowned Commander’s Palace Restaurant.
