5. We know how to have fun
New Orleanians will throw a festival for just about anything. We are all about having a good time, and the more the merrier.

The only thing we have more of than restaurants are bars. New Orleans is peppered with local watering holes to quench your thirst after a long day. Whether you prefer the familiar dive bar or the bustling night club, New Orleans has the perfect bar for you.
7. New Orleans is a great place to hear live music
New Orleans and music have a long history together. From jazz to zydeco, we have some of the most talented musicians right here in the city and you can listen to them just about anywhere.
8. To-go cups
You don’t realize how spoiled you are until you find yourself at a bar outside of New Orleans and try to leave a bar with your drink.
9. We’re an artist’s city
New Orleans is a perfect place for artists of all types to draw inspiration from. Countless authors, artists, and musicians have spent time here, tapping into the creative energies this amazing city provides.
10. And we support local artists
No other city supports local artists as much as New Orleanians do. You can find local musicians in bars and restaurants seven days a week playing their hearts out, and you’ll have a hard time walking into a New Orleanians house and not seeing at least one piece of local artwork.
11. Our parks are absolutely breathtaking
Spend any amount of time at City Park or Audubon Park and you’ll quickly realize how spoiled we are. Walking underneath canopies of ancient oak trees while gazing at the dozens of beautiful lagoons scattered throughout both parks is a sight to see.
