New-Orleans is the largest city in the state of Louisiana and is often called "the most unique city in America." Located in southeastern Louisiana along both the east and west banks of the Mississippi River, New Orleans is known worldwide for its multicultural heritage, music, cuisine and annual Mardi Gras celebration. In August, 2005, the city was devastated by Hurricane Katrina, resulting in one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the U.S. Tens of thousands of residents were rescued and taken to shelters and the city was declared "off-limits" while clean-up efforts began. Today, New Orleans is thriving, once again. Travel and Leisure Magazine chose New Orleans as one of their top destinations for 2007 and The Today Show named the city as number two in its "America the Beautiful" series. New Orleans is famous for its attractions like Bourbon Street and the French Quarter, the mansions of Magazine Street, its many historic antique shops, restaurants, bars and notorious nightlife. Other attractions include the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans Museum of Art in City Park, the Audubon Zoo and the Aquarium of the Americas. New Orleans probably has more tours than any city in the nation - culinary tours, riverboat tours, cemetery tours, swamp tours, gardens tours, plantation tours, French Quarter tours, haunted tours, horse & carriage tours and more. The city is also host to numerous celebrations, including Mardi Gras and New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. The food of New Orleans is, in itself, a major attraction. French, Spanish, Italian, African, Native American, Cajun and Cuban traditions all combine to produce a truly unique Louisiana flavor. It is said that "no place loves its food quite like New Orleans." As it has been for centuries, New Orleans is an experience unlike any other and the city welcomes visitors with open arms.
