Inside New Orleans

GETTING AROUND Perhaps the toughest part of navigating New Orleans isn’t deciding how to get around, but where to go once you’re there! The city has dozens of options for getting to wherever you want to be.

Exploring the French Quarter and beyond Measuring less than a mile wide, the French Quarter is easily covered by foot. Should you prefer riding to walking, pedicab companies operate throughout the neighborhood. Mule-drawn carriages are another option, and to see the Quarter from another perspective, ride the Algiers/ Canal Street Ferry to historic Algiers Point, where a bicycle and walking path on the levee overlooks the river. Other bikefriendly parks include the Lafitte Greenway and Crescent Park.

Magazine Street, a six-mile-long shopping and dining paradise that is on the No. 11 bus route. Download the RTA GoMobile app for iPhone to purchase passes for the bus or streetcar.

City Park, New Orleans Museum of Art and Esplanade Ridge riches Urban adventurers will love New Orleans City Park, home to the New Orleans Museum of Art. Bike, drive or take a taxi beneath the oak trees lining Esplanade Avenue, or take the Canal Street streetcar to the park. Once there, you can rent kayaks, paddleboards, bikes and paddleboats.

Shopping, dining, nightlife and wildlife in the Garden Beyond the District and Uptown city limits For a mere $1.25, the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line goes past historic homes in the upscale Garden District. An insider’s tip: bring exact change for your streetcar conductor.

Beyond the Garden District is Uptown, home to the Audubon Zoo and the dining and entertainment hubs of Oak Street and Maple Street. All are also easily reachable via rideshare services including Uber and Lyft, and by taxi or car. Another can’t-miss Garden District and Uptown attraction is

Plantation tours are among Louisiana’s top attractions, and many are within an hour’s drive of New Orleans. Numerous tour operators will pick you up from your hotel for your plantation tour (many also offer swamp tour options).

ARTIST WE LOVE:

ISABELLE JACOPIN

Talk a little about how you first came to New Orleans from your native France. I started my love story with New Orleans with good luck. I was living in France and wanted to travel to America, and one of my customers said one day: Where would you like to go? I said that I’d love to discover New Orleans, and they said they’d buy me a plane ticket if I gave them a painting. I came to New Orleans for a month, and as soon as I arrived I knew part of my life would be here. Now I spend eight months a year living in the French Quarter and four months in France.

Why did you settle on living in the French Quarter? It’s so full of life. I’ve been living for four-and-a-half years in an upstairs apartment at the corner of St. Peter and Royal, where I have my studio. I keep the windows

open and music comes into my studio. I have so many subjects to paint — the musicians on the street, the crowds and buildings.

Do you stay connected with New Orleans when you’re in France? Yes. We actually have a New Orleans music festival in my village where we’ve brought great names from New Orleans to perform. We’ve had Big Chief Monk Boudreaux and Johnny Sansone. I also listen to WWOZ [New Orleans’ local jazz and blues station, at 90.7 FM] online when I’m at my studio in France. I have so many beads and New Orleans decorations there ... I miss New Orleans when I’m away, but if you came to my studio, you’d think you were in a French Quarter house!

Why do you gravitate towards those subjects? Because it’s New Orleans life. I like doing paintings of crowds to make contrasts between all of the colors. Like, all of the people at Jazz Fest, you can recognize the stage but not the people in my paintings — they’re just a sea of colors and shapes. I also love painting scenes from my balcony, of people and street scenes. I have a different perspective. Most of the street musicians who play in front of my apartment know me by now.

Where can people see your work? I do a lot of festival posters that people have seen. I did the official poster for the 2016 French Quarter Fest, and have done others for the Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo and Jazz in the Park, in Armstrong Park. If people want to stop by my studio where I have about 200 of my paintings, they can contact me directly. I love having people come to my place and showing them how I work.

-------------- Culture -------------For a great introduction to the LGBT lifestyle in NOLA take a Twirl with Glenn De Villier, New Orleans historian and writer. This gay history tour from a local perspective, full of humor and Southern graciousness, highlights the sometimes-intangible charms of the “Queen City of the South.” For something less structured visit the newest addition to the local arts scene: the St. Claude Arts District. The galleries here have become one of America’s largest and most cohesive alternative-arts district thanks to an inspired community and the contemporary art biennial Prospect New Orleans.

New Orleans has long been a Southern oasis to the LGBT community. As one of Travel + Leisure’s Top 5 Gay Friendly Cities and one of OutTraveler’s Favorite Places, we’re proud to be recognized as a welcoming, inclusive destination. The charming culture, perpetual romance, and treasure trove of hidden gems and secrets have contributed to a thriving LGBT-friendly mecca for travelers. Take a trip. We promise you’ll fall in love one way or another.

Historically described as “an acre of seats in a garden of Florentine splendor,” the restored Saenger Theatre plays host to all kinds of events like Broadway shows, concerts, and comedians. A little more off the beaten path is Café Istanbul, a performance hall beloved by local artists.

-------------- Romance -------------Love is in the air! New Orleans is well-known as a top destination for romance. Now that marriage rights have been fully extended to all LGBT citizens, there's even more reason to celebrate and explore. Let the passion and enchantment of our beloved city set the mood for your own love story.

-------------- Where to Stay -------------The Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery has undergone a transformation to create one of the most exciting and best new hotels in New Orleans. Signature amenities include pillow, spiritual and pet menus.

-------------- Explore -------------Some of the most exciting discoveries for first-timers and locals alike are French Quarter courtyards. Often out of plain site, these half-hidden jewels are seductive and offer an alluring, more intimate escape from the busy Downtown streets. You can dine in one when you visit The All New Feelings Café & Courtyard Bar, Cafe Amelie or Sylvain, three of our most enchanting New Orleans restaurants. From there, get lost wandering around some of the quieter areas like Barracks and Governor Nicholls streets or go antique shopping along Royal Street. For a perfect date in NOLA, start with brunch at Elizabeth's then cross over to Crescent Park for an amazing view of New Orleans. Keep making your way along the Mississippi River past the Steamboat Natchez and peruse shops at The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk. For a more personalized shopping experience, visit Fraques NOLA Outfitter in the Central Business District. Afterwards, head to the James Beard Award-winning Shaya for an unforgettable dining experience. City Park is a great daytime alternative for local romance. Have a picnic or paddleboard along the lake — there's even an intimate gondola ride to quietly guide you through the park's breathtaking lagoons. Afterward, head over to Swirl Wine Bar, a place to have fun, relax and feel at home learning about, buying or drinking wine, and socializing with friends.

Around 1822, America’s first gambling casino opened in New Orleans. Like modern casinos, it was open 24/7. In 1999, Harrah’s brought the action back to New Orleans with the opening of Harrah’s New Orleans Casino. Today, you can take a shot at more than 1,700 of the hottest slots and more than 100 table games including blackjack, roulette, baccarat, craps, and three card poker. The poker room boasts more than 20 poker tables, offering several exciting varieties of poker that are suited to the recreational poker players and seasoned veterans. When you’re ready to dine, indulge in a marbled ribeye at Besh Steak or never-ending favorites at The Buffet. Looking for a quick bite or pick me up? You will find endless options like Fuddruckers, Starbucks, McAlister’s Deli, Acme Oyster House and 2GeauXpress. Time for a cocktail? Try one of our specialty “potions” at Hoodoo Lounge or dance the night away in Masquerade Nightclub. For a memorable souvenir or an eye-catching piece of jewelry, shop at Essentials, Uniquely NOLA, Swarovski and Crislu. Don’t miss Manning’s on Fulton Street where New Orleans football legend Archie Manning has created the ultimate sports fan’s destination to Eat, Drink and Cheer! Relax and stay as close as possible to the action at Harrah's Hotel. This AAA Four Diamond Award-winning hotel offers newly renovated rooms and luxurious baths. The hotel anchors Fulton Street, blocks of classic 19th-century architecture filled with trendy nightspots, shopping and restaurants, including Ruth’s Chris, Manning’s, Gordon Biersch, Grand Isle and Fulton Alley.

Insider's Tip Sometimes called a "French donut," these decadent treats were brought to Louisiana by the Acadians. A beignet is a square piece of dough that, upon being deep fried, forms a slightly doughy yet slightly crispy pillow and is covered with powdered sugar. There are other savory versions, with fillings such as crawfish or shrimp also seen on New Orleans menus.

In 1929, restaurateurs Bennie and Clovis Martin gave free sandwiches to striking streetcar workers as a sign of solidarity, often saying “here comes another poor boy.” These days, you order your own po-boy “dressed” with lettuce, tomato, pickles and mayo, served up with a variety of meats and cheeses.

The French Quarter is best known for rowdy nightlife scenes, but during the day, it’s a retail paradise. According to New Orleans Magazine, “Shopping in the French Quarter can be just as fruitful as going to the mall and way more fun.” Their top tip for this 13-blockby-6-block district? Wear comfortable shoes!

Step Aboard Streetcars (no, they’re not trolleys) have been a part of New Orleans’ public transportation since the first half of the 19th century. In fact, you can thank the streetcar for the creation of our most celebrated sandwich, the po-boy. Bennie and Clovis Martin are credited with first serving the sandwiches to striking streetcar motormen and conductors in 1929. In the mid-1900s, buses replaced many of the iconic vehicles, but after several decades our streetcars made a comeback. Now five different lines travel throughout the city, letting you explore for an affordable $1.25 (exact change required).
