The Big Easy

Whether you know New Orleans as the ‘Big Easy’ or the ‘City that Care Forgot’, it is an American city like no other with a thrilling multicultural heritage that manifests itself in its vibrant Creole culture.

New Orleans is the quintessential cultural melting pot with its French and Spanish roots giving many of its streets a positively colonial feel with African, Caribbean and, of course, Creole all part of the compelling cocktail. The city of Mardi Gras may have been battered by the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, but it has made an impressive recovery and it is back to its best.
