Celebrated annually as a top vacation destination, New Orleans and its 17 wards offer guests a memorable medley of cultural pursuits, immense events and savory restaurants. NOLA's multicultural heritage—shaped largely by French, African and American cultures—can be seen in everything from the French and Spanish Creole architecture to festivities such as Mardi Gras to foods like Italian muffuletta sandwiches. The French Quarter, arguably the best known ward, is where you'll find New Orleans staples: Bourbon Street nightlife, Café du Monde's beignets and Jackson Square performers. Don't miss the unique experiences awaiting you in the Big Easy's other neighborhoods, such as the Saints football games at the 3rd ward's Mercedes-Benz Superdome and tours of Longue Vue House and Gardens in the 17th ward.
Stay by Lake Pontchartrain and only eight miles from downtown New Orleans at the Country Inn & Suites, New Orleans I-10 East, LA. Reserve our rooms and enjoy free Wi-Fi, a free, hot breakfast, an outdoor pool, and more during your visit.
