New Orleans

New Orleans, LA

A collective of music, art and culture, New Orleans, LA is known to many as “the most unique city in the U.S.” In addition to Creole cuisine and a traditional style of Jazz music, New Orleans has some of the most original and ornate architecture in the world. Incorporating French and Spanish architectural styles, the city’s French Quarter includes beautiful and historic buildings, especially near Jackson Square and Bourbon Street. Extravagant mansions are also adorned by old Southern oak trees along St. Charles Avenue. But New Orleans is also an innovator in more modern architecture. The city’s tallest building, the Hancock Whitney Center (also known as One Shell Square) stands over 697 feet tall in the Central Business District. Additionally, many other high rises and historic buildings are located in the area along Poydras Street. To host its athletics teams, New Orleans also has large sports complexes, including the Superdome, which is the largest fixed dome structure in the world.
