5) New Orleans, Louisiana
If you love jazz, blues and downhome cooking, New Orleans is the place to go. Laissez les bons temps rouler! It’s the motto of New Orleans, meaning, “Let the good times roll!” If you’re looking for a party, head to Bourbon Street. It’s home to the famous annual Mardi Gras street festival. Any time of year is party time in New Orleans, though. In the historic French Quarter you’ll find reasonable accommodations in charming historic buildings. Tour the elegant Garden District and meet the local characters on Frenchman Street. The city has an overall supernatural vibe. For a deeper experience, visit the VooDoo Museum. Or, take a guided ghost or vampire tour which leads through alleyways, taverns, and local cemeteries. Don’t forget to sample the local cuisine. Crawfish, Muffuletta, and Gumbo are among their most famous dishes. Some restaurants offer package deals for dining and entertainment.
