Planning a trip soon? Why New Orleans should be on your list.

The city that gave is Mardi Gras, eerie cemeteries, Creole and Cajun cuisines, and the incomparable Louis Armstrong, has its roots as a French colony which is visible in parts of the city. If you’re a history buff you’ll rewarded by the city’s colonial and post civil-war  architecture and infamous residents.  Or, if you’re in the mood to let loose a bit, you can get your kicks at the world famous Bourbon Street.   For those trying to avoid the heat, Feb-May will provide cooler temperatures but any time of year is a good time to soak in The Big Easy.

Below is a list of a few of New Orleans’ must see locations.


Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop is considered to be the oldest bar in the United States opening its doors to thirsty locals and tourists since the 1700’s.

If you’re a fan of American Horror Story Coven you’ll recognize this as Miss Robichaux’s Academy.  Located in the picturesque Garden District, this mansion is one of the many worth seeing.
