There aren't many U.S. cities livelier than New Orleans. This southern Louisiana gem is a hub of activity year round and is certainly not a loss for culture, festivity and excitement. A stroll down Bourbon Street, or anywhere in the French Quarter, will leave visitors feeling reinvigorated.
Along with with a general atmosphere of merriment, New Orleans is also home to some of the most popular teams in the country - most notably the New Orleans Saints. After Hurricane Katrina devastated the city in 2005, the Saints became a favorite among sports fans for their resiliency. In the years since, the team has found renewed success, and behind the leadership of Drew Brees captured the Super Bowl in 2010. The Saints still play in the Superdome, one of the most recognizable venues in all of sports, which offers an experience like none other.
In addition to Saints home games, the Superdome hosts the Sugar Bowl every year, one of the most revered bowl games in college football. It is also the site of the Super Bowl in 2013, and hosts the BCS National Title game once every four years.
The Saints may be the flagship franchise of the Big Easy, but they're certainly not alone. The New Orleans Hornets of the NBA have played at the New Orleans Arena since they moved from Charlotte in 2002 and were quickly adopted by the city.
Of course, there is much more to New Orleans than just sports. With its roots firmly planted in French culture, the city developed a reputation for its celebration of Mardi Gras and legendary jazz music. In fact, New Orleans is host to one of the most widely attended music festivals of the year, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Held every year in the last weekend of April and first weekend of May, the event features some of the biggest names in music along with acts that pay tribute to the city's cultural center.
Visitors will also certainly want to stop by the French Quarter. The oldest part of the city, it is often considered the central hub of activity and excitement. It has attractions to meet the desires of almost everyone. From the bars of Bourbon Street to the world famous Cafe du Monde you can wander the streets for hours and hours.
