Explore The French Quarter

The French Quarter is the heart and soul of New Orleans. The beautiful buildings with their balconies and galleries dressed up in lacy ironwork. The tri-color flag of France flies proudly next to the fleur de lis of the Bourbon kings. The French Quarter reminds you of a quaint French town, with cafes and coffee shops next door to art galleries and antique stores. Colorful bars and world-famous restaurants lure you inside as the sounds of music fills the air.

Architecture, Oaks, and Magnolias of the Garden District

No trip to New Orleans is complete without heading uptown to see the Garden District. This historic Uptown neighborhood has a different vibe than the French Quarter. Instead of French and Spanish architecture, the Garden District is purely American. Greek and Italian mansions share the block alongside colorful Victorian townhouses. The Garden District has beautiful live oaks and shady magnolia trees to make this walking tour an enjoyable year-round tour.

The Axe Woman of Bourbon Street

Bourbon Street in New Orleans was a glamorous place with a long-held reputation for a good time. While the rest of America was getting more conservative, Bourbon Street became more salacious. Burlesque dancers filled the stages as live bands played to entice tourists inside the darkened bars. Evangeline the Oyster Girl was already a headling act in 1949, rising seductively out of her oyster shell, her erotic ballet filled the seats. Evangeline’s star continued to rise until a new act rolled into town. Divina the Aqua Tease also had a water theme to her act which was now going to take the spotlight off of Evangeline. Divina wanted to be the new headliner, but Evangeline had other plans.
