The Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport is located in nearby Kenner, just fifteen miles west of the downtown area. The New Orleans area has a semitropical climate, so expect mild winters with temperatures in the low 60s and an extremely hot summer season. Although summer temperatures generally top out in the mid-90s, the high humidity can make the heat feel more intense. No matter what season you visit New Orleans, pack lightweight clothing that you can layer to accommodate fluctuating temperatures. In contrast to most tourist destinations, the extreme summer heat and threat of hurricanes make June through September the slow season, so bargain prices can be found during these months. February through May, when the Jazz Fest and Mardi Gras take place, are the most popular travel months. During your visit, be sure to make time to take in some traditional jazz music, explore the French Quarter and Bourbon Street, take a ride on a steamboat, and visit Armstrong Park. New Orleans also offers authentic Creole cuisine, a vibrant nightlife, and plenty of shopping opportunities.
Although it continues to rebuild after the ravages of hurricane Katrina, New Orleans is still a city that should be on everybody’s bucket list.
