New Orleans Holidays -  Great for Jazz Clubs and Carnivals From the many jazz clubs, bars, and cafés to the unnerving interest in Voodoo, there’s a lot of culture on New Orleans holidays and if neither of those appeal, how about the parks, historic buildings, and the streetcars (trams to you and I). Not going to be on your holiday in New Orleans in time for the annual Mardi Gras Carnival, which starts on January the 6th? (yes!? Twelfth Night!) Then go to the Mardi Gras museum and get your picture next to King Kong or Marilyn Monroe or any of the other marvellous props from this spirited event.  

Holidays in New Orleans -  Fully Recovered

Your first concerns, being a sensitive global traveller might well involve wondering whether a holiday to New Orleans is either appropriate or safe right now. It was August 2005 when Hurricane Katrina picked up New Orleans and threw it into the news headlines. It wasn’t just the storm damage that made the news though, but the struggle the city had coping with the aftermath of the flooding that covered around 75 per cent of New Orleans.

The locals were very quick to return to a city they love a lot, and the French Quarter of New Orleans was pretty much untouched anyway. You won’t find much patience for anyone with a negative attitude about the city, instead you’ll be the recipient of a warm welcome synonomous with a Deep South holiday and you’ll have a fantastic time! Everywhere is open now and there aren’t any curfews. So some tourists are staying away because they think the city is still underwater, good! You’ll not have to queue so long in the restaurants then. Go to New Orleans now! And yes, there is a tour of the worst hit areas. It’s tastefully done and you won’t be allowed off the bus to take pictures. It’s been set up to help gather support to rebuild New Orleans.

New Orleans Holidays -  A Great Place for children

Yes, they do love children here, so there’s no reason not to bring your own. There are loads of things to do with them too! Aquarium of the Americas is here and is rated as one of the best in the US. Audubon Zoo is also highly regarded and has a train going round it to all the best bits. The zoo and the aquarium did get a whack from Katrina, but are now reopened. There’s an amusement park called Six Flags, should your children still be fuming about not being in Disneyland. There are lots of great trips and tours to take too whilst on holiday in New Orleans, cover the plantations out of town, or go on a movie location tour and see where bits of JFK, or The Big Easy (not really a child friendly film!) were shot.

Oh yes, New Orleans itself is often referred to as ‘The Big Easy’ because people here like to take it easy. It’s as simple as that!
