New Orleans is a high-spirited city filled the pulsing beat of jazz. The city delights visitors with its riverboats, Creole cuisine, quaint antique shops, and narrow streets of the French Quarter. While visiting, make sure to take a ride on one of the picturesque trolley cars. New Orleans reminds travelers of European cities, in part because the French and Spanish colonial architecture adds an Old World backdrop to some of the city's most famous streets. This culturally rich city is the perfect place for solo travelers and family adventurers alike.
