The Big Easy
New Orleans; a Cultural Melting Pot
New Orleans is a place known for celebrations but rooted in culture. Créole, Spanish, French, Cajun, African-American; all find representation in modern New Orleans. The city evokes good vibes and a laid-back lifestyle while celebrating those who worked hard to build and maintain its ethos. From the colorful houses of Faubourg Marigny to the stately mansions in the Garden District, New Orleans remains diverse yet united.
Famous for Mardi Gras festivities, Bourbon Street is among the most famous avenues in America. But beyond the iron-railed balconies filled with party-goers, you’ll find sprawling, shady oak trees and communities bonded by food and fellowship. Following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the city was left devastated. After years of funding from aid organizations and the hard work of local New Orleanians, the city is still rebuilding. Its culture, humanity, and heritage has not suffered, but rather grown stronger throughout. There is a true sense of identity in New Orleans, and we would love to share that with you.
