                  Places To Go In New Orleans

                  You’ve heard what lies beyond the keyhole of New Orleans, where secret gardens rest behind antebellum doors. Tales of Mardi Gras masquerades and Bourbon Street thrills have surrounded this storied space for decades, and at long last you’re ready to explore its mysteries. You need not go far to find things to do in New Orleans. To the north, jazz lovers listen to sultry notes in dim clubs. To the west, the local brewery hosts a yoga class. Which will you try? It’s New Orleans, after all: why not do both?

                  Things to do in New Orleans

                  Begin your New Orleans vacation on Magazine Street. Local artisans operate out of buildings covered by Spanish moss, a photography opportunity if we ever saw one. Satiate your hunger and your inner souvenir hunter in one fell swoop by devouring savory Po'boys and purchasing handcrafted jewelry. Select the perfect evening attire at one of the vintage stores, or simply enjoy a carefully brewed cup of espresso at a tiny coffee shop.

                  Roll the "r" in Freret Street over your tongue as you hunt for the friendliest arcade bar. Colorful characters emerge on this stretch of street as the evening jazz heats up, and it’s here that many exciting memories will be made. Ask your bartender for tips for what to do in New Orleans; if they bring up “Gasa Gasa,” then you’ve found a true local.

                  Pass through the lovely Garden District by trolley or bike to fill your lungs with Southern breeze. The antebellum houses and brimming wisteria beg for photos, but these are hardly the only New Orleans attractions for you to explore. Venture a little farther to Oak Street to Jacques Imo’s, the famed dinner spot. It’s easy to find; just follow your olfactory senses to fresh fish roasts, cheddar biscuits, and honeyed butter.

                  Traveler, your adventure has just begun. Summon that morning carriage ride, dust off beignet powder, and gaze at the vines lacing historic hotels in New Orleans. Book your deals to explore “The Big Easy” with Travelocity, and wake up to magic and jazz in the air.
