New Orleans Top Tourist Attractions

The French Quarter was the city's original focal point and remains its chief tourist draw.

The French Quarter

The Quarter is not just another tourist destination. It is the blending of people, architecture and the soul of the city that makes visitors want to come back year after year. From the sounds of jazz floating on the sultry air down Bourbon Street to the sights of lush and serene hidden courtyards peeking through wrought iron gates; from the scents of Magnolia and Jasmine perfuming the air to the tastes of some of the world's finest restaurants - the French Quarter offers unforgettable and endless experiences to the traveller.

The French Quarter is the only intact French Colonial and Spanish settlement remaining in the United States. It has been a continuous residential neighbourhood since 1718.

Louis Armstrong

New Orleans Jazz Exhibit imparts a clear sense of how jazz evolved - from its roots in the rhythms brought by African slaves to recent Jazz Fest performances.

Voodoo Spiritual Temple

One meaning assigned to voodoo, 'being in a trance,' is in part derived from the lack of proper burial for slaves, which was believed to result in restless souls or the walking dead, also called zombies or plat-eyes. In New Orleans, the spirits of deceased ancestors are carefully protected through common rituals such as jazz funerals, featuring brassy bands and a 'second line' of parades in top hats and umbrellas.
