Sicilians, Italians, Africans, Irish and others. Notice the stunning architecture throughout the neighborhood. Balconies decorated with exquisite ironwork, courtyards brimming with lush greenery and beautiful fountains scattered along the street showcase the French Quarter's European roots. The Spanish are to be credited with the majority of the architectural design here. Many buildings have ceramic plaques informing visitors of street names during Spanish rule. The National WWII Museum is a historical gem that transports you to a time when victory hung in the balance. Guaranteed to move and educate, it features a 4D cinematic experience, interactive exhibits, soaring aircraft, personal histories – make sure you allot sufficient time, this attraction will absorb you. Mardi Gras World by the port and convention center might pique your interest – a tour will educate you on everything that goes on behind planning the annual grand event that celebrates everything symbolizing the New Orleans lifestyle. If off the beaten path festivals are on your radar, then the annual Fringe Festival is your best bet to take on artistic experiences by local and national theater groups. If you are a nature lover, then get swampy! On your tour aboard a Cajun Encounters flat-water boat, you will get to see alligators, raccoons, turtles, birds and your tour guide will share many tales of local lore. Another water-based activity is the Steamboat Natchez. This is the last authentic steamboat on the river and celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. It offers a jazz brunch during which you may check out the boat while enjoying informative narration about Ca the city. This is a favorite for celebrations fe d uM onde of any kind so book in advance for your tables on the steamboat. The Court of Two Sisters on Royal St. has a not-to-bemissed jazz brunch that should be a quintessential part of any trip to Nola. Get there hungry or you may not do justice to the vast hot and cold supper spread. Marti’s on Dumaine St. is an elegant and relaxed Parisian-style bistro with historic ties. Watch out for the two restored murals in the restaurant – a true revival of a Nola classic. Of course, you have to visit the famed Café du Monde for coffee and beignets. Their location on Decatur Street/French Market is the busiest, the original and open 24/7 so wait in line for your turn. Crowds guaranteed but that’s part of the experience. Consider the French Market for souvenir shopping as well as little specialty boutiques. If you are traveling with children then the Audubon Insectarium is worth the visit as is the Zoo, and Aquarium along River Walk. Plus, many cruise liners treat Nola as their port of call so you might want to do a little vacationing here before or after your cruising.
