New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

Nicknamed "The Big Easy," New Orleans is known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene and spicy, singular cuisine, reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African, and American cultures. Embodying its festive spirit is Mardi Gras, the late-winter carnival famed for raucous costumed parades and street parties.
