World famous for everything from its food and live music scenes and colorful architecture to airboat tours through swamps and the city’s cocktail culture, there’s no shortage of reasons to plan a trip here. It’s unquestionably one of the most unique and historic cities in the world — but is there a best time to visit New Orleans?
The answer depends entirely on the type of trip visitors are hoping to have. Some people want to spend their time outdoors, while others prioritize tasting and sipping their way through The Big Easy. Some folks may have their hearts set on seeing alligators, while some visitors hope to go to an authentic crawfish boil or attend a lively music festival.
