Your Complete New Orleans Guide

By Justin Barisich, July 24, 2017

It can be overwhelming to know where to eat, drink, catch live music, shop and take in the history of New Orleans while you’re in town for a few days. That’s why we’ve done the research for you and put together this complete New Orleans guide.

As Chris Rose, one of the city’s most famous journalists, once said of his New Orleans, “We drink at funerals. We talk too much and live too large and, frankly, we’re suspicious of those who don’t.”

With a truly unique combination of Cajun, Creole, French, Spanish, Caribbean, African, Italian and good ’ol Southern cuisines, New Orleans might be dubbed the food capital of the South, if not of all America. Along with food comes culture, tradition and histories of these various peoples, which has long made New Orleans an essential city for trade, industry, art and the mixing of everything.

Because of all this, for centuries, famous battles were fought here; countless notable authors, musicians and artists have lived and produced great works here; and various authentic cultures still thrive only on these marshlands.

So soak it all up while you’re down here for Connect in August. Go ahead and live like a local for a little while. You’ll soon see why many folks never want to leave.
