Suite Life The Academy French Quarter New Orleans

Whether this is your first time to New Orleans or you’re a seasoned visitor, the city’s invigorating spirit is sure to inspire, captivate and motivate you to jump in and see and do so much. With so many options and many things to do all the time, narrowing the playing field can be a challenge. Think of it this way: divide how much time you have by what your priorities are – history, art, music, culture, and on and on - and then add in a little time for the spontaneous joy that is the Crescent City’s calling card. Subtract a few hours for sleep, multiply your dining pleasure by at least three times a day, and you have the perfect equation for an amazing New Orleans experience. Here is where to start making decisions.

Whether you want to explore history or haunts, shopping or swamps, food or just have fun, there's a tour for you with a locals' perspective. Pick your passion or simply get to know New Orleans from a new point of view. Either way, diving a little deeper into the city's stories and culture will reveal so much more left to discover.
