New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz and Seminal Blues and Roots Music, and the tradition continues very strongly in this highly musical city. Good music and good food are high priorities in New Orleans and the city has plenty of both. Good Music (blues, jazz, marching bands and many cross blending thereof) is everywhere in the French Quarter – in the bars and clubs and on the streets. Why, even the landing is a musical experience as the terminal is called the Louis Armstrong International Airport!
The New Orleans spirit is indomitable, post-Katrina, and we will visit the many extant attractions, spend time at the world-renowned New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and of course, visit the many fine restaurants and entertainment hot spots in the Crescent City.
