Summer in New Orleans can be very hot and humid. We suggest light colored clothes, comfortable shoes and rain gear for those cooling afternoon thundershowers.
DID YOU KNOW ?
Above ground cemeteries
New Orleans' tombs are above ground because of the high water table. Most of the city is situated below sea level.
The entire Louisiana territory, which doubled the size of the United States in 1803, was sold by France for only $15m.
Louisiana's system of law is still practiced under the Napoleonic Code.
WHAT TO PACK
Comfortable walking shoes and sandals
Many of the best attractions in New Orleans are within walking distance. Walking is the most popular mode of transportation. We also recommend the Pedi Cabs.
Foreign exchange is very limited in the hotel and it can be difficult to exchange money without a bank account.
