The Big Easy

The Big Easy describes the gentle, slow and easy-going way of life in New Orleans. In many ways this perfectly explains it.  If you go out on Bourbon St. at night however anything goes.  You will see costumes, no clothes and people just out to have a good time.

The Jazz.

Every bar you enter has live music of all kinds but their Jazz music is what Many people go to New Orleans for it’s amazing live music and party seen. You can see the flocks of Bachelorette and Bachelor parties.  While this is what makes the city so fun, there are so many other unique characteristics that make it such an amazing place.

The architecture.

New Orleans is a melting pot reflective of it’s history of multicultural heritage.  From the balconies of the French quarter to the mansions on St Charles you can see French and Spanish influences.  If you look around you will see Fleur De Lis everywhere.

The Fashion.

For anyone interested in fashion, Magazine Street is full of boutiques featuring unique trendy clothing.  There are boutiques ranging from low cost to expensive.  Everyone can find something they love here.

The Food.

We all know about the Beignets, muffuletta, Jumbalaya and Po-Boys which are staples and must haves in New Orleans.  On my recent visit I was introduced to charbroiled oysters which are full of garlic and hands down the best thing I had that weekend.  Whatever you try it will be delicious, decadent and full of flavor.

The people.

The people in New Orleans are genuinely the nicest people you will meet.  They make sure you are well fed and enjoying yourself.  We had a chance to do a swamp tour and the guy that led the tour was so proud to show us his way of life.
