"Hot Fun in the Summertime!" - New Orleans Offers Plenty of Exciting Events This Summer

April 29, 2013
In years past, New Orleans has been a place to get away from during the hot, steamy summer months. Not anymore! Taking its cue from the old Sly & The Family Stone song, New Orleans has now become the place to come to for some "hot fun in the summertime."

Plenty of "hot fun" things are cooking here this summer, especially in the French Quarter and surrounding neighborhoods. Recent years have seen the addition of new summer fun events, the expansion of existing ones and the continued existence of those that have been here for awhile.

January 30, 2013
It's party time in New Orleans and the French Quarter is rockin'!

Once again Bourbon Street is Ground Zero for the fun and excitement as a New Year kicks in. Whether you're here with your fraternity or sorority, or with a group of friends, or even by yourself (which you won't be for long!) you'll find plenty of exciting things to keep your partying spirit going here in The Big Easy. If you're not here yet, you need to make your plans and reservations now. The fun is just beginning and you'll want to be close enough to be able to walk to and from it.

Party Hearty in Super Bowl City

November 07, 2012
Myriad of Events Set for Big Game in February

It's the marquee event in American professional sports and it's coming to New Orleans on Sunday, February 3. However, Super Bowl XLVII will be more than just a three-hour game between the top-seeded teams of the American and National Football Conferences. It's a weeklong extravaganza of exciting, entertaining and educational events, and no other host city puts on a better show than New Orleans where more Super Bowls have been held than any other city.
