7 Incredible Places In New Orleans That Never Ever Change
They say the more things change, the more they stay the same. One of the best parts about New Orleans is all the historical landmarks, and how they remain the same throughout the years. Here are some of our favorite places in New Orleans that never change.
1. The Roman Candy Wagon
The Roman Candy company has been offering this nostalgic treat since 1915. The gourmet taffy initially sold for 5 cents, and that price remained until 1970. Even at a dollar a stick today, you still can’t beat—it’s like a taste of childhood in every bite.
2. St. Louis Cathedral & Jackson Square
You can always count on the oldest cathedral in the country to stay the same. Jackson Square with the Cathedral in the background has become an iconic New Orleans photo opportunity.
3. Bourbon Street
Bourbon Street has been passing out hangovers for centuries.
4. The St. Charles Streetcar Line
It’s the oldest continuously operated streetcar line m in the world! This particular line began in 1835, and each car operating on the line is a historic landmark. On a beautiful day, it’s a wonderful way to spend an hour or two gliding underneath all the majestic oak trees on St. Charles Avenue.
5. French Market
The vendors inside may change, but this golden arch is here to stay.
6. The Carousel at City Park
The carousel itself dates back to 1906 but some of the animal figures date back to 1885. It was moved to City Park in 1928 and has been delighting children ever since.
Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop Bar has been slinging drinks since the 1700s, making it one of the oldest bars in the country. The bar doesn’t even have electricity!
