Like a party? Then you've come to the right place. The home of Mardi Gras and the birthplace of jazz, NoLa has some of the best nightlife in the US. Perched on the banks of the Mississippi River, New Orleans is the largest city in Louisiana, and boy is it fun.

Tourist attractions near New Orleans vacation rentals

New Orleans, or the Big Easy, is also a history buff's dream. It's hard not to be moved by the National WWII Museum in the Central Business District, which tells the story of America's experience in the war. Highlights include a vast display of WWII aircraft, and a 4D movie theater showing the Tom Hanks movie, Beyond All Boundaries. Swing by St. Louis Cathedral, the city's fairytale castle-style church overlooking Jackson Square. While families will love the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, where you can meet sharks, stingrays, and even African penguins.

Activities

The birthplace of jazz—NoLa knows how to party

The highlight of the New Orleans calendar is, of course, Mardi Gras. Fat Tuesday is held for 2 weeks in February when the city is alight in a blaze of color, music, and good cheer. But it's not the only draw to the city. Explore the historic French Quarter, take a paddle steamer cruise on the Mississippi, or head to Uptown and the funky shops, antique stores, and art galleries of Magazine Street. While night owls should book a New Orleans vacation rental within easy reach of Bourbon Street, the epicenter of the city's jazz clubs and nightlife.
