When WestJet flies to this destination:
New Orleans is a city like no other in the United States. Known for its French Creole architecture, multicultural history, delectable cuisine and famous annual celebrations, New Orleans is often described as the most unique city in America. The city's popular nickname, the Big Easy, nicely sums up its relaxed and hospitable attitude.
When visiting New Orleans for the first time, you will quickly notice the energy of the city through the live music being played, well, just about everywhere. You'll hear music in the bars that never close in the French Quarter and enjoy the vibrant urban folk culture spread around town.
New Orleans' most popular celebration is, of course, Mardi Gras, but this city also hosts many large music festivals such as the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. This festival is the largest of its kind in the U.S., and it gathers crowds of people from all over the world to experience the city's culture, food, art and jazz music.
Love to shop? Don't miss the four big shopping areas: the French Quarter, Royal Street, Magazine Street and Oak Street. The more adventurous can take in the fishing and boating in the bayous and swampland only 24 miles (or about 39 kilometres) from the French Quarter. Land lovers will find that New Orleans is also a great place for family travel, and it has enough attractions and activities to entertain people from all walks of life.
Culture and cuisine, architecture and arts, music and Mardi Gras, festivals and the French Quarter – after a holiday in New Orleans, you're sure to be a big fan of the Big Easy.
