New Orleans, Louisiana, is the most European flavored city in the USA. Spanish and French cultures blend with Afro-American and Caribbean influences to form this foreign city at the mouth of the Mississippi River.
New Orleans is famous for Jazz music, wild nightlife and its fine Cajun cuisine. Every February, the whole city goes crazy for a week long carnival celebration known as Mardi Gras. Tourists flock to New Orleans all year round to sample the grand food and to enjoy the nightlife.
