Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in New Orleans, Louisiana your home away from home

Located between the meandering Mississippi River and Lake Pontchartrain, New Orleans, is known as the “Big Easy”. The laid back lifestyle and live jazz make it a unique and memorable place to stay.

Things to Do in New Orleans, LA

Those visiting New Orleans for the first time should take a walking tour of the city to discover the city’s history and attractions. A trip on the Steamboat Natchez with its musical calliope is a great way to see the Mississippi River sights. Another unusual guided tour takes visitors around the Lafayette Cemetery and explains why the tombs are all above ground, lightened with some humorous anecdotes. The Old Ursuline Convent, the oldest building in Louisiana is worth a visit along with the Old US Mint, now housing the Newcomb College of Art and Jazz Museum. One must-do from your New Orleans holiday rental is sampling chicory coffee and beignets which the Café du Monde is famous for. Still on the theme of food and drink, sample the local Cajun and Creole cuisine and po’boy sandwiches.
