    Jumping Jazz Flash—New Orleans is a gas, gas, gas

    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. Explore the historic French Quarter, visit the National World War II Museum, or take a swamp tour of the Louisiana bayous. Book a New Orleans vacation rental in the CBD or the French Quarter and have Bourbon Street, the heart of the city's party scene, right on your doorstep.

    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.

    New Orleans—taking it easy in the Big Easy

    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.

    Mardi Gras is party Gras in the city

    New Orleans is one of the most visited cities in the US. The busiest time to visit is spring, from February to May, when it's dry and a pleasant 65-70 degrees. Of course, it's Mardi Gras season, when New Orleans vacation rentals get booked up far in advance. Summer is the low season, as the steamy tropical temperatures rocket to 90s and humidity is high. Come fall, the temperatures ease up a little to around 75 degrees, although this comes with threat of hurricanes. Winter is cooler still, with highs around 60 degrees, so pack a jacket.

    Son of a gun, have big fun on the bayou

    Perched on the banks of the Mississippi River, New Orleans is a sprawling city near Louisiana's stretch of the Gulf of Mexico. A 30-minute drive northeast of the city is the Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge. At 23,000 acres, it's the largest urban wildlife refuge in the US. A popular birdwatching spot, the refuge is home to the endangered brown pelican, bunting, and bald eagle. The bayous are an iconic sight of Louisiana, and its wetlands are filled with largemouth bass and catfish. Take a swamp boat tour and spot a wealth of wildlife, including alligators and marsh rabbits.
