Its nickname refers to “a gentle pace of life” – so what better place to visit! New Orleans, which is pronounced “New OAR-linz” – not “New Or-Leenz”, is best known for its Mardi Gras Parade - a carnival parade in February and March each year. However, the city has a lot more to offer and is a great destination for incentive groups. You don't have to travel in high season to experience Mardi Gras, as we can arrange a customized Mardi Gras parade for groups of all sizes year-round.
A must see when visiting is the French Quarter – the most historic heart of the city. Stroll along the beautiful old-world architecture with wrought iron balconies, explore local art galleries and pick up the famous “Slap ya Mama” Cajun seasoning in one of the spice shops. From here you can walk to Mississippi river and stroll along the boardwalk or take a cruise on the last authentic Steamboat with workings of a 100-year old steam engine.
In the evening there are plenty of choices for restaurants with live jazz music and cajun cuisine. You must have crawfish at least once when you’re here! After dinner walk down the neon lit Bourbon Street where you hear music on every corner. It’s a mecca for those looking to party with an abundance of nightclubs and bars.
Take a break from the action of the French Quarter and experience one of the several, beautiful Plantation homes. A short 45 minute drive from New Orleans lets you step back in time. See extravagant homes overlooking sugarcane fields and ancient avenues of oaks. If your group needs more action – Louisiana has a variety to offer. Discover local wildlife during a one of a kind swamp adventure. First, you will go on an airboat tour in the bayous where we promise you will view exotic birds, lush plants and – yes - alligators. From there your guests will jump on a seaplane and experience an unforgettable flight over the swampland and city with a water start & landing. Still not enough action? Head over to the NOLA Motorsports Park and drive one of the Supercars or in an open wheel formula car for an adrenaline-pumping experience.
After all the adventures guests will need a place to rest up. Be assured that New Orleans hotels give you something wonderful to come home to. Luxury, Historic, European, Boutique, and even Haunted. We will help you choose the right one for your groups needs and budget.
The best time to visit is in the spring (after Mardi Grad or before Jazz Fest) and in the fall / winter (to avoid crowds) – but still enjoy warm days . Even though summers offer the most bargains on flights & hotels, it gets very humid and rainy.
