New Orleans

Overview

  • Flight Time: 9 Hours
  • Time Zone: UTC -6:00
  • Best Time to Travel: February - May

New Orleans is one of the world's most fascinating cities – it's home to a truly unique melting pot of culture, food and music. Come down and experience New Orleans, one of America's most culturally and historically-rich destinations.

A culture-lover's dream, the city boasts awarding-winning museums; everything from experimental to big Broadway show theatre; art galleries displaying the work of local treasures and renowned masters; a number of historic and heritage attractions and an unparalleled music scene, from Gospel, Jazz, and Rhythm and Blues, just to name a few.

Under French, Spanish and American flags, Creole society coalesced as Islanders, West Africans, slaves, free people of colour and indentured servants poured into the city along with a mix of French and Spanish aristocrats, merchants, farmers, soldiers, freed prisoners and nuns.

New Orleans was, for its time, a permissive society that resulted an intermingling of peoples unseen in other communities, and it is New Orleans' diverse heritage that is the driving force behind this unique and exotic city. The contributions of Africans, Caribbean peoples, the French, Spanish, Germans, Irish, Sicilians and more created a society unlike any other.
