Experience Your Best New Orleans Vacation

New Orleans is a city that rewards those who plan the least. Travelers wandering the historic, balcony-crowned streets invariably find themselves in a web of small pleasures … a street band playing on the corner of Bourbon and Canal … the Green Goddess on Exchange Alley … a tiny bar where residents willingly combine anything.

From the horn-heavy bands at The Maple Leaf to the Pontalba Apartments, let Creole mojo cast its spell over your New Orleans vacation. Orbitz insiders reveal the city's top 10s, the best time go and how to cruise the French Quarter like a local.

Best time to take a vacation to New Orleans

The best months to travel to New Orleans are March, April, October and November when the air is scented with jasmine, and the sounds of jazz spill out on to the streets. These months also mark the height of festival season, including the French Quarter Festival (April), Jazz Fest (April/May), Voodoo Experience (October), and the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival (November).

During winter months, New Orleans is often infused with a damp cold and raked with ornery winds. And though temps sink below freezing two or three times each year, it doesn’t stop Saints tailgate parties (late fall) or Mardi Gras (February or March).

Then there's summer, when conditions are hot and damp. This is also peak hurricane season -- especially August and September.

Insider tips for New Orleans travel

City Park

This park offers even more excitement in the heart of New Orleans. You'll find walking and biking trails, an antique carousel, the New Orleans Museum of Art, an amusement park, plus the world's largest collection of living oaks.

The Abbey

Drink with the locals at this punk/dive bar in the French Quarter. Boasting a 1930s history and rockin' jukebox, the surprisingly friendly lounge also gets street cred from several vampire tours.

Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse

Housed in the Royal Sonesta Hotel New Orleans, this Bourbon Street venue offers a sophisticated scene for live jazz and cocktails.

Afternoon Tea at Le Salon

If you're pining for the Royal treatment, Le Salon in the Windsor Court Hotel hosts an elegant afternoon ensemble of tea, champagne cocktails, English tea sandwiches, classical music and more.

Dining

Satisfy your sweet tooth at Angelo Brocato's (ice cream) or Sucre (macaroons). Try po-boys at the Parkway Bakery, and Soul food at Praline Connection. Craving Latin? Head to Rio Mar.
