Don't Miss These Must-Do Activities in New Orleans

Famous for its over-the-top Mardi Gras celebrations, jazz clubs, and decadent cuisine, New Orleans knows how to let the good times roll. But there’s more to this Louisiana port town than an epic party. History buffs can explore the city’s multicultural heritage, from French Quarter convents and war memorials to Garden District mansions. For foodies, Creole cooking classes and food tours offer local flavor, while those with a taste for the macabre might uncover legends of voodoo, vampires, and ghosts on a stroll through the city’s famed cemeteries and other top haunts. Repeat visitors or those looking to venture beyond city limits can chug down the Mississippi on a vintage steamboat or get a glimpse of life in antebellum Louisiana at historic plantations. Whatever your interests, here are our top picks for essential Big Easy experiences.
