Synopsis

Our 200 page illustrated travel guide will take you to the world-famous city of New Orleans.

In New Orleans, you'll find the roots of jazz as well as a blossoming culture made possible by the contributions of French, Spanish, African, American, Irish, Haitian, German, Jewish, Italian, and Vietnamese immigrants that is unlike anything else in the United States. Here, the laid-back atmosphere of the riverfront South has mixed with French sophistication and African-American energy to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Though hit hard by Katrina, New Orleans remains the largest city in Louisiana and one of the top tourist destinations in the United States.

"Laissez les bons temps rouler" is what they say here in the Big Easy, and you too can "let the good times roll" with a cool stroll down Bourbon Street, a hot Dixieland band, and even hotter Creole cuisine. Mardi Gras may be the city's calling card, but that's just one event out of the hot and muggy year in New Orleans.

Go ahead, take a riverboat down the Mississippi, munch on some beignets, and watch the Saints go marchin' in. But when it's time to leave, you, too, will know what it means to miss New Orleans.

Finding Internet access when out and about can be problematic so carry your mobile guidebook in the palm of your hand.
