Top 5 Things to See: 48hrs in New Orleans

New Orleans is bursting with unique experiences, starting with the city's historic architecture that makes for excellent photography. Performances by jugglers and jazz musicians are typical, and the food is worth every penny.

  • 1. Jackson Square

    Situated in front of St. Louis Cathedral, Jackson Square is a small park ideal for leisurely walks in the morning and evening. You can pose for a picture in front of the classic cathedral to capture its architecture. As you walk, you might meet jugglers, jazz musicians, and voodoo specialists.

  • 2. Café du Monde

    Head to Café du Monde, just a short walk from Jackson Square, to try their iconic French beignets. These fried doughnuts covered in powdered sugar go particularly well with a café au lait. You might be tempted to pass by this café more than once after your first experience.

  • 3. Decatur Street and the French Market

    Walk along Decatur Street and stop by the French Market for shops, good old-fashioned gumbo, beers, and live jazz. You can also stop at Gallery Cayenne for art exhibits or swing by a voodoo store for a reading.

  • 4. Plantation Tour

    Head out of New Orleans for a plantation tour. Brace yourself for a mix of the scenic plantation and an up-front look at the unbearably cruel history of slavery. Some nearby estates include Oak Alley Plantation, Laura Plantation, and Houmas House.

  • 5. Bayou

    Travel in an airboat in the Bayou area to observe cypress swamps, spot some alligators, and enjoy beautiful scenery.
