Visiting Greater New Orleans

Greater New Orleans, triumphant in the recovery from the damage of hurricane Katrina, was once called “The City that Care Forgot”. Now anew in spirit, New Orleans known as “The Big Easy” has regained its composure and status as a popular travel destination. A spicy Cajun and French Creole mix of history, culture, architecture and jazz; New Orleans is famed for its rhythmic way of life and over-the-top festivals. Visitors to NOLA are mesmerized by the lively neighborhoods of the French Quarter, Canal Street and Lafayette Square. Home of Café du Monde and beignets, the cuisine of this Crescent City is a destination in and of itself.

Take a trip to New Orleans and find out for yourself why people shout from the rooftops “Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler”.

Calling all wizards! January and February's New Orleans Comic Con Convention is at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. If you consider yourself “geek-chic” or even clairvoyant, you won't want to miss this gathering of Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, X-Men and Babylon 5 fans. Featuring the best Comic Con personalities from around the world, guests include: Billy Dee Williams of Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back fame, Batman’s own Adam West, and Walter Koenig from Star Trek and Babylon 5.

On February 7th and 8th, families, friends and history buffs pay homage to the infamous 1815 Battle of New Orleans. A re-enactment of the struggle that took place on Chalmette Battlefield is played out as hundreds of living experts dressed in period attire tell the story through words, songs, combat and live cannons. This re-enactment is an amazing depiction of Louisiana’s historic past that lead to the signing of the “Declaration of Peace”. Immerse yourself in the turmoil as the fight begins with the intentions of the British trying to seize New Orleans from the USA.

Mardi Gras 2011 returns to New Orlean’s French Quarter culminating on Tuesday March 8th. A festival full of music, parades, Krewes, floats, costumes, masks and excitement, this is the most anticipated celebration of the year. As people dress in carnival attire, eat mounds of king cake and party in crowded streets, the harmonious zydeco and Cajun rhythms fill the air. Try to catch glimpses of Indian Chiefs and tribesmen humba as they pay respect to the Chiefs and tribes before them. A time of jubilee, the state of Louisiana gathers in the city of Greater New Orleans to celebrate a new epiphany.
