Undoubtedly one of America's cultural hotspots, New Orleans is a fascinating mix of American, African, and European influences. Jazz music might be its main claim to fame, but you can just as easily fall in love with the city for its incredible cuisine, lively bars, colourful street festivals, and indomitable spirit.
To see the city come alive in a burst of costumes, music, and colour, jump headfirst into New Orleans' Mardi Gras festivities. If the city's Creole cuisine is what intrigues you, there are food festivals galore to choose from, and even if you can't book vacations to New Orleans during one of them, there's great local fare to be enjoyed here throughout the year. The French Quarter tops every tourist list of places to see in New Orleans, and this district is well worth spending a day or two in to get a feel for the city's intriguing history and culture.
All inclusive New Orleans vacations will be most expensive around Mardi Gras as well as during the city's many music, food, and cultural festivals which are held throughout the year. Check to see that your dates don't clash with these as you will get cheaper package deals when there are no major events being held in the city. On the other hand, if you're booking a vacation to New Orleans in order to attend one of these events, book as early as you can to get the lowest prices available.
Vacation packages will be cheapest in the summertime, but keep in mind that temperatures go well into the 30s (Celsius) coupled with high humidity levels, which could prove overwhelming for those not used to this kind of weather. Book a trip for fall or winter and enjoy New Orleans when it is slightly less crowded, and inexpensive all inclusive vacation deals are easy to find. You might not have the chance to attend quite as many festivals and events, but you could end up saving up to 30-40% on your travel budget as compared to a peak-season visit.
