    Top Attractions to Visit During Your New Orleans Vacation

    Bourbon Street

    Bourbon Street forms the heart of Old Town New Orleans, the French Quarter. The street dates back to 1718 and features numerous historical sites. Today, Bourbon Street is known as a party mile and a place with restaurants and bars around which interesting stories entwine. By the way, the street got its name not from the amber whiskey, but as a tribute to the French noble family of the Bourbons. Because New Orleans was founded at the beginning of the 18th century by the French colonist Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville.

    2. Jackson Square

    Also in the French Quarter, you'll find Jackson Square, located just outside St. Lous Cathedral. The public park, with its striking equestrian statue of Andrew Jackson, the seventh president, is a national historic landmark in the city.

    3. Garden District

    At one time, the Garden District consisted of plantations. Today, the district is considered one of the greenest and most picturesque in New Orleans with magnificent mansions surrounded by spacious lots. Walking through the Garden District, you will always pass pretty gardens, parks and fountains. Many of the former country homes are home to shops that invite you to browse.

    4. Saint Louis Cemetery I

    Saint Louis Cemetery I was opened in 1789 and is the oldest cemetery in Louisiana. Well-known personalities have been buried here. Among them the once influential voodoo priestess Marie Laveau.

    5. Preservation Hall

    Preservation Hall is located in the French Quarter and is one of the top addresses for jazz concerts in New Orleans. Built around 1750 as a private residence, the building served as a speakeasy and photography studio in the 19th century before Larry Borenstein opened an art gallery in the building and also hosted occasional jam sessions. These evenings featured performances by legends such as George Lewis, Punch Miller, Sweet Emma Barrett, Billie and the Humphrey Brothers. This is how jazz concerts took off until they became more popular and attracted large crowds of jazz lovers. Less
