"The Big Easy"

New Orleans is world-renowned for its distinct music, Creole cuisine, unique dialect, and its annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras. The historic heart of the city is the French Quarter, known for its French and Spanish Creole architecture and vibrant nightlife along Bourbon Street. The city has been described as the "most unique" in the United States, owing in large part to its cross-cultural and multilingual heritage. Founded in 1718 by French colonists, New Orleans was once the territorial capital of French Louisiana before being traded to the United States in the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. What to do during your conference downtime?* We have a few ideas...

Frenchman Street

Frenchmen Street is in the 7th Ward of New Orleans. It is best known for the three-block section in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood which is home to some of the city's popular live-music venues in addition to restaurants, bars, record and book shops, and other local businesses.*
