New Orleans Tourism
New Orleans tourism is constantly on the upswing, as it should be in this beautiful, picturesque, exciting city of Louisiana. If you have New Orleans on your list of places to visit, but you don’t have a large budget to deal with, you should know that there are many things you can do in New Orleans that are inexpensive or even free!
What can NOLA Insider Guide offer that is free to a visitor in town? Surprisingly, there is quite a lot to do that will cost you next to nothing! Just sit down in Jackson Square and watch the interesting sights go by, for one. Take at a look at the artists displaying their works and enjoy the music of the street musicians around the French Quarter. Buy a cup of coffee at Cafe du Monde and take-in all the sights around you. There are also free festivals you can join in depending upon what time of year that you visit. Of course, there is Mardi Gras, “the largest free show on earth,” The French Quarter Festival and the Satchmo Festival are big music events that are free. Many clubs on Frenchman Street do not charge a cover, so come on in and listen to music and dance the night away for free. You can view the amazing architecture this city has to offer and take a free downtown walking tour.
