NIGHTLIFE, JAZZ, AND SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY
New Orleans is known as a bit of a party city. It mixes Jazz with southern charm, spooky stories. Aside from the festivals, haunted happenings, and world-famous foods, the city is home to several people and organizations doing good for the local people and the world.
5 DAYS: 11-16 APRIL 2022
In the city where Jazz was born, we’ll see a show at Preservation Hall, which also homes a non-profit organization that helps with education and social causes.
Among our favourite foodies stops is the SABA restaurant, home of an award-winning chef who donates a portion of his revenues to affordable housing in the city.
Visit historic plantations, reminiscent of Gone with the Wind, and their photogenic oak trees, unique custom architecture, and learn the rich history of these properties.
We’ll visit the Touro Synagogue and the Museum of Southern Jewish experience to explore their music, food, film, speakers, and participate in workshops.
Experience unique southern hospitality at the resort-like Ritz Carlton, only steps away from the Canal Street streetcar and some of the city’s best sights.
