Bourbon Street at the French Quarter in New Orleans

Bourbon Street at the French Quarter

New Orleans has a very special flair. The city on the delta of the Mississippi River is home to just over 1.3 million inhabitants in the metropolitan region, and around 350,000 inhabitants live in the city itself. Surprisingly, almost 50% of the city's territory is water, thanks to the sandy delta. You almost feel like you're visiting some kind of Venice. The city is located just below sea level and is protected from water by dikes leading to the Gulf of Mexico. New Orleans gained fame for several reasons. Firstly, the city is for the formative music. This is where jazz has its roots. Various festivals bring the fans of Jazz, Rhythm and Blues and Rock' n' Roll together on a regular basis and let the fans celebrate equally.

In summer it could be quite hot and humid. In addition, it is the time when storms often come down. Autumn is the hurricane season, which is probably better avoided if you can. If you are not heat-resistant, you might prefer the late spring. Then it is also flowering time and it is not quite as dry as in midsummer.
