New Orleans, located on the Gulf of Mexico coast near where the Mississippi Rivers enters, is the largest city in Louisiana.

It is famous for its distinctive cultural features — Creole food, 18th & 19th century architecture, museums, festivals (notably Mardi Gras), great nightlife, and music of many styles (including dixieland and jazz).

Founded in 1718, it is one the nation’s oldest cities and has an atmosphere rich with a mix of French sophistication, Creole, African-American, Caribbean, Irish, Haitian, German, Vietnamese, and other ethnicities all creating an energy that can be described as something greater than the sum of its parts.

A Cultural Atmosphere includes both the historic (eg, landmark town centers) and the contemporary (music, nightlife, etc).

Cultural Interests tend to be:
(a) indoors-oriented, and therefore not as linked to weather conditions for enjoyment
(b) relatively physically accessible, while also not being physically demanding.
Featuring mainly indoors-oriented historical or contemporary attractions.
