New Orleans Travel

The Crescent City embraced us, unlocking doors every step of the way. It unlocked a door in my heart that will forever be open to the people, the sounds, and the spirits that are the city of New Orleans.
Boo! Did we scare you? Probably not, but it's that time of year when thousands don their scary best and hit the streets in search of tricks, treats and frightening fun. If you're looking for this year's biggest events and best shivers, here are the best Halloween parties of 2015.
The sights, the sounds and most notably, the food, all reflect and encapsulate the city's multicultural influences, including Cajun and Creole, as well as it's singular history. But with more than nine million visitors a year, New Orleans has swelled with tourist traps designed to trick you out of a truly authentic experience.
Everyone knows NOLA, the partying-est, craziest, drinking-est, convention-going, Mardi-Gras-Parading, jazz-music-playing, levy-bursting, Brad-Pitt-loving, most reputation-rebuilding city in the USA, especially right now.
New Orleans, you touch my soul. Each night, I go to sleep thinking of what new adventures we will have tomorrow. I can think of nothing better than stepping out the front door and living life in a place I love.
I think it's fair to say that among the top reasons people visit New Orleans, setting aside food, booze and certain anatomical parts of women that also begin with B, is our music. New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz and blues, and our heritage as a music city is strong.
And for the first time in my young life, I connected to a place, to a set of smells, sounds and sights that seemed overwhelmingly pleasing and joyful.
