Did you know?
Mardi Gras and New Orleans are two things that go hand-in-hand, but the first Mardi Gras celebration in the United States actually took place in Mobile, Alabama. However, New Orleans can claim to be the place where the first opera in the US took place, in 1796. New Orleans is also the birthplace of jazz music. Walk around the French Quarter and you’ll find many lively jazz clubs open late into the night. Try your hand in one of New Orleans’ casinos – New Orleans is also said to be where poker and craps were invented. Why not sample some of the local cuisine on your trip to New Orleans? Both alligator and turtle soup are local favourites. Jambalaya (a delicious combination of meat and vegetables with rice) and king cake are also not to be missed.
