Jackson Square - New Orleans

New Orleans, LA

In Louisiana, they put the same thing into their music that they put into their gumbo: everything. The excitement you feel at the first tug of a largemouth bass on your line. The scent of sweet magnolias that glow in the moonlight. The laughter of children at the Mardi Gras parade. It's all here - in the sweet jazz, the toe tappin' zydeco, the outrageously original rockabilly, and the soul-stirring gospel. From north to south, east to west, they don't miss a note. Make your own sweet music on your honeymoon in New Orleans!

Highlights
Wander through the cobblestone streets of the historic French Quarter, or visit the top flight art museums and galleries that dot this city. Enjoy world-class music and architecture that is unabashedly opulent and quirky. This is New Orleans - from the grand and elegant to the funky and fun.
Geography/Environment
New Orleans is often called the "Crescent City" because it was founded on the bend of the Mississippi River. This unusual shape causes locals and visitors to become confused occasionally, as there is no traditional "north, south, east, or west" mode of getting around. Some streets in the city begin at one end parallel, and end up perpendicular.
Activities
One of the most well known American festivals takes place in New Orleans - Mardi Gras! Mardi Gras can occur on any Tuesday from February 3 through March 9. The fluctuating date was established by the Catholic Church, which designed the Gregorian calendar with a fixed date for Christmas, but with moveable dates for other religious holidays. Easter can fall on any Sunday from March 23 to April 25, and its exact date was set to coincide with the first Sunday after the full moon that follows the Spring Equinox. Mardi Gras is always scheduled 47 days preceding Easter (the 40 days of Lent, plus seven Sundays).

    I am here to tell you that the French Quarter of New Orleans is a great honeymoon destination for those who love food, music and cities. It is alive and well and definitely NOT underwater. Bourbon Street and Preservation Hall Jazz are going strong....
