The History

If you can't wait to live in an area filled with stunning architecture and historic landmarks on every corner, New Orleans is the place for you. We have a unique history that is unlike any other city in the United States. Originally a French colony, New Orleans was eventually purchased by the United States and blended many unique cultures into one. New Orleans has been a cultural hub for centuries, and our history lives on today through our festivals and historic sites.

The Culture

New Orleans is truly the definition of a melting pot. With French, African, American, and Creole influences, you could say we're pretty diverse. All of these differences bring us together, and when you call New Orleans home, you'll be able to sample an unparalleled variety of local cuisine, art, and more! Want a quick taste of our culture? Try sampling some beignets at Cafe du Monde or the Backstreet Cultural Museum.

The Neighborhoods

New Orleans has always been known for its vibrant neighborhoods and districts. Of course, everyone is familiar with spots like the French Quarter and Bourbon Street, but there's so much more to NOLA than those spots. One of our favorite spots is Uptown NOLA, which features the Garden District, the Audubon Park and Zoo, and gorgeous mansions. Come and explore all that we have to offer—you'll never run out of things to discover!

The Community

Spend a little time in NOLA and you'll realize that we're all family here. No matter what the circumstances, we stick together and pride ourselves on being a tight-knit community in a city setting. We celebrate our diverse culture with year-round community events, which can be found on their community event page. Love giving back to your community? We're a close bunch, so you'll find plenty of opportunities to volunteer for local organizations!
