If the traffic and congestion in Los Angeles is stressing you out, a trip to New Orleans may be the right antidote. Served by Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY), the Big Easy offers up wonderful music, amazing food and a generally great time. This is the birthplace of jazz, and world-renowned live music venues can be found throughout New Orleans. It's also home to some of the finest restaurants in the nation, such as Commander’s Place.
Louis Armstrong International is located about 15 miles from New Orleans. This is also a great city to explore on foot any time of the year. Visit in the spring for Mardi Gras or the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and be sure to take a ride on the St. Charles Streetcar where you'll pass by grand mansions, and a variety of local eateries on your way to Audubon Park.
Flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Louis Armstrong New Orleans Airport (MSY) take about 4 hours. New Orleans is an extremely walkable city, but those who do plan to rent a car can find MSY's dedicated car rental facility, within walking distance of the passenger terminal.
