Fighting off the demons of recent times with a combination of indomitable community spirit and a shared love of local superstar Lil Wayne, New Orleans is fast overcoming the dark days of hurricane Katrina, and returning to the happy times and staunch, fun loving outlook of a city living by the motto "Let the good times roll."
Seen by many as almost as Caribbean as it is American, New Orleans is boisterous and colorful, full of a vivacious energy that seems to soak into the skin from the moment you arrive amongst the funky sounds of the city streets and the succulent tastes of foods fused through the city’s multifaceted cultural influences. It could turn out to be a city of offense or crime easily, dynamic and moderate with abundance in the way of bizarre, rough parties and garish, cocktail-infused, fast ways of life.
And why not? After all, few cities revel in the good times quite as much as New Orleans. New Orleans is one of the few locations in which you can visit for a day or two and make memories that will last forever.
There’s plenty to discover aside from a good-time vibe, too, like the delicate pastel buildings of the French Quarter, with its trams, fusions architecture and shambolic yet seductive old stores and churches. Hop on and off the trams to grab crepes, dine in opulent restaurants like the Carousel Bar, or take a horse and carriage ride through Jackson Square, soaking up the quiet ambience of the manicured gardens and eying the church spires piercing the skyline.
Woldenberg Park at sunset is another alluring and romantic corner of New Orleans, while the City Park Sculpture Garden or a relaxing ride on the top deck of the Steamboat Natchez are not to be sniffed at, either. You’ll find the traces of liberal-era hippiedom in amongst the open space of the city, with the modern art LOVE sign still occupying a small park corner, and sexual direction of absolutely no consequence to liberal locals.
New Orleans is a city unlike any other, steeped in history and passion, and, for all its recent tragedy, still falling happily into the liberal comedy end of the city-destination spectrum. All in all, its freethinking, lively, and more fun that than even the enlightened might expect.
