Things to do here

Tourism site:


Carnival/Mardi Gras season - plenty of parades!


Jazz Fest (and so many other events)


The iconic Cathedral-Basilica of Saint Louis and adjoining park

Streetcars:


Algiers ferry - fantastic views


National World War II Museum


Eat! - too many great options to list!

So much more - ask a local or someone that has lived there
Edit Edit

Things to avoid here

Getting inadvertently hit by beads, cups, doubloons and other "throws" being tossed by krewe members along a carnival/Mardi Gras parade route

Not avoidable but hurricanes and tropical storms are always a possibility
Edit Edit

Advice for those moving here

It can get very hot and very humid
