When it comes to New Orleans, Louisiana, the real question is why wouldn't you visit the city that is known for mouth-watering Cajun and Creole cuisine, top-notch Southern hospitality, as well as one of the largest Mardi Gras celebrations in the United States? You'll notice that the weather is very much in line with that of Dallas, Texas, so there won't be many surprises there.
To truly experience New Orleans, you should take a walk along Bourbon Street, and a tour of the French Quarter is also required. Dubbed Vieux Carre, the French Quarter is the heart and soul of New Orleans, where you can enjoy zydeco music, the Faulkner House and European architecture.
Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) is about 15 miles from downtown New Orleans. Once you arrive, opt for public transportation via RTA buses and streetcars, or you can rent a car right at the airport. The Central Business District of New Orleans, known as the CBD, the French Quarter and the Garden District are each a 20-minute drive from the airport via I-10.
From Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) to MSY directly, expect a flight time of an hour and half. To discover local music in New Orleans, skip over Bourbon and head to Frenchmen Street.
