A Celebration Like No Other!

May 07, 2018
There is no place quite like New Orleans! And this year our historic American port city celebrates its Tricentennial. Take a walking tour through the Vieux Carre and stop at the 400 block of Decatur to view the statue of Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville, a French-Canadian explorer and colonizer who founded New Orleans. As you stroll through the French Quarter’s lively city streets, notice the architecture derived from France and Spain, giving you the feeling like you are transporting in time. Jackson Square, the old Place d’Armes, is the oldest public space in the city, designed in 1718 and sitting opposite the magnificent St. Louis Cathedral, which was constructed in the early 1700s.

The cobblestone streets and wrought-iron balconies have an intimate old-world charm that just bursts with romance. From its sultry jazz clubs, romantic restaurants, and exquisite courtyards to the nostalgic views while strolling along the banks of the Mississippi River, the old-world charm of the French Quarter is sure to captivate your heart. So take a break and sip on a Mint Julep on one of our enchanting balconies and listen to the beat of the French Quarter…you will never want to leave.
