What you'll do

Taste the good ol' South Big Easy style along its crown jewel the French Quarter, bursting with flamboyant flavors you'll get to try in the bustling French Market, where melt-in-your-mouth pralines await, or gobble a helping of seafood jambalaya - the state's pride and joy. Oh-so-good gulf shrimps and grits with a French flair can't be missed, then bask in the greatness of gobsmacking good gumbo before sipping wine at a local sweet spot that tourists don't know about. Fancy a culinary adventure? Pair champagne and french-fries (trust us!) at an unpretentious gem, before getting a taste of old-school New Orleans at a spot straight out of 1900. Next, put a fun spin on cocktail hour at a carousel bar, and dust your cowboy boots off for hog-killing good bar grub.
