This will be my first time visiting New Orleans. What can I expect?

New Orleans is a place like no other. In New Orleans, European traditions blend with Caribbean influences. The street names are in French and Spanish, the Creole architecture comes in a carnival of colors, and the voodoo is a Caribbean import. The magic is irresistible.

The food and music are legendary and steeped in history. Haitian and African Creoles developed an exotic, spicy cuisine and were instrumental in creating jazz and Cajun zydeco. You will eat well and be entertained in the Crescent City.

The average temperature in April is in the upper 70s during the day and upper 50s at night—perfect weather for exploring the city’s many districts, including the French Quarter, the Central Business District, and the Warehouse and Arts District, where the convention center is located. You may also want to explore the shops and restaurants on Magazine Street, listen to jazz on Frenchmen Street, and ride the streetcar along St. Charles Avenue to see the historic mansions.
