Jazz Tour: Urban Adventures - Urban Adventures offers plenty of great tours, but their Jazz Tour is the best. Bonus: you even get a complimentary beer along the way. The tour starts with an overview of a history of jazz before taking guests to some of the best jazz clubs on Frenchmen Street, the stage at Armstrong Park, and other places to view live brass and jazz bands on the streets of the Big Easy. It’s as much a moving concert as it is a tour.

I loved this park as it provided a more secluded and calm atmosphere in the middle of a city as bouncing as New Orleans. During your walk you’ll spot several statues standing tribute to Louis Armstrong and jazz music itself. But my favorite area of the park is definitely is Congo Square where - during the 18th century, those enslaved persons were typically allowed to visit on Sundays. They could socialize, set up shop to sell good, and of course play music, dance, and sing.

Armstrong Park is an escape right outside of the French Quarter dedicated to the jazz mogul Louis Armstrong and his genre of music in general. The park often welcomes arts markets and live performers. Aside from being a great place to take a break from bustling city life, it is home to the Mahalia Jackson theater which hosts impressive live performers and plays.

Malik of Know NOLA Tours was knowledgeable and interesting during our Treme Walking Tour. He even managed to keep us dry during a torrential downpour! Highly recommend Malik’s tours.

- kaylee (Kaylee Giacomini) New Orleans is known for its cuisine, rich culture, unique architecture, and nightlife. But did you know that they have one of the largest city parks in the country? NOLA is home to thousands of acres of parks waiting to be explored. Some are compact oases as small as a city block, while others are lush botanical escapes on the banks of the river with babbling streams and ancient oak trees. Check out some of my favorites for when I need a break from city life.
- kaylee (Kaylee Giacomini) Whenever I check out a new city I like to orient myself with the local landmarks and culture by embarking on a city tour. Moving to New Orleans presented me with the conflicting identity of not necessarily being a tourist, yet not exactly being a local either. I believe that it’s important to be a tourist in your own city - to get to know it inside out and understand why it’s so beloved. Unsure how to do this? The best way to start is to take a tour. In my years living in New Orleans, I’ve had the privilege of taking quite a few; here are my favorites.
