Overview Of The Port Of New Orleans

About New Orleans
New Orleans is a major port and the largest city and metropolitan area in the state of Louisiana, in the United States of America.

Take the St Charles Streetcar into the Garden District is now a stately residential area with lovely architecture and small, unique shops selling antiques, second-hand books, art, fashion and luxury items.

Wander Jackson Square for a definitive experience of New Orleans. The statue of Andrew Jackson on his horse, with St. Louis Cathedral looming in the background, is a favourite tourist photograph. Jackson Square is bordered by a pedestrian mall.

Royal Street is full of antique shops, art galleries, restaurants, bars and hotels.

The growing museum district around Lee Circle will interest art-lovers.

The Ogden Museum of Southern Art features artists from the region, whilst the Contemporary Arts Centre is a combination of theatre and gallery.

There are many walking tours offered in the French Quarter including ones with ghosts and voodoo themes.

In the French Quarter, Preservation Hall is the venue for jazz and brass dating back to 1961.

Bourbon Street in the French Quarter is known for its strip joints, souvenir shops, bars and live music venues. You will find mostly tourists along this stretch of town.

Further afield, the Faubourg Marigny is an original Creole neighbourhood frequented by more locals than tourists. See an incredible collection of jazz memorabilia at the Louisiana State Museum Jazz Collection at the Old U.S. Mint. Items include Louis Armstrong's cornet and 10,000 photographs, dating back to the 1950's. Just across the street is the French Market, with inexpensive food kiosks and lots of souvenir options.

At the Audubon Insectarium, located in the U.S. Custom House on Canal Street, discover all about insects, butterflies and other creepy-crawlies.

Located in Uptown New Orleans, Audubon Zoo can be visited via the St Charles Avenue Streetcar line, which stops in front of Audubon Park.

The National World War II Museum has extensive and interactive exhibits and a special section on the Normandy Invasion, with thousands of 3D artefacts, representative of the war years both at home and overseas.

Based at the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park Preserve, around 20 minutes from downtown you can sail your own canoe down Bayou des Families. The park also has walking trails.

Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge is the largest urban refuge in America. Walking trails offer great wildlife and bird-watching and daily boat tours are offered along the canals.

Typical Creole fare include seafood bisques, garlicky etouffee stews with crawfish and sausage and Jambalaya.
