Louisiana Through the Eyes of a Traveler

New Orleans is unlike any city in America. Home to Gumbo soup, a mixture of sausage, crab in a broth, Poyboys, saucy stuffed sandwiches, and crawfish are Louisiana delicacies.

When arriving in the thriving city one wouldn’t think it has recently bounced back from the natural disaster, Katrina or the oil spill in the Gulf. Walking down Canal Street at night it’s not unusual to hear jazz music in the distance or a lone civilian singing on the sidewalk. With streetcars running all day and night transportation all you need is a $1.25 and it is easy to travel within the city.

Not only is New Orleans well known for there seafood, it is also home to the winning football team of last years Super bowl, the Saints, and universities such as Loyola and Tulane. With the weather staying at a comfortable 87, October is the best month to visit, there is a park located across from the universities home to beautiful willows. If you where to take a walk mid- afternoon college students would be relaxing in the gondolas and laying out in the grass before their next class begins.

“New Orleans is unlike any other city in America, it’s the closet you will get to feeling like you’re no longer in the country” said an Admissions Councilor from Tulane. If it’s for the food or the good weather, work or college visits, New Orleans, Louisiana is the place to visit.
