New Orleans: Food and Fun In the Big Easy

New Orleans has rebounded beautifully from the damage of Hurricane Katrina, and the city is once again full of fun and vibrant energy. Any visitor will love the French Quarter with its variety of fun tourist shops, fantastic Cajun style food, and festive atmosphere. While you're there, be sure to stop by Cafe Du Monde for one of the famous beignets. The powdered squares are far more than donuts, they are a delectable New Orleans tradition! With so much to see, a New Orleans walking tour is a great choice to hit all the city's high points. Try to make time for the Audubon Zoo, where you can see over 1,500 species of exotic animals and a special swamp exhibit that showcases the Louisiana wildlife in a perfectly simulated natural habitat."
