Old-world culture and a modern-day excitement come together in beadazzling New Orleans (also known as NOLA). Develop an addiction to gumbo, let the roaring jazz music fill your soul, and sink into the Big Easy with your cheap New Orleans rental car.
New Orleans' cultural, restaurant and bar scenes are a main draw for any visitor, and the best place to soak up all three is -- wouldn't you know it -- the French Quarter. One hotspot is the Maison Bourbon Jazz Club. Home to Dixieland and traditional jazz, this historical music hall is not only a great venue to see how jazz shaped the country, it's also the best place in the Crescent City to get a truly Southern concoction: a mint julep.
If you came for authentic New Orleans cuisine, look no further than the Garden District and neighboring Uptown for the most authentic gumbo and etouffee around. Take your rental car for a spin and check out some of the city's most beautiful antebellum residences that have defined the city's architecture since the 18th century. One of the city's premier eateries known as Jacques-Imo's Cafe is located in Uptown, a place where locals dine on the best fried chicken and shrimp creole in town. For more adventurous eaters, don't leave without trying the signature alligator cheesecake -- chomp chomp.
