Mark Twain once said "In America, there is New York, San Francisco and New Orleans. Everywhere else is Cleveland." In what's arguably one of the most culturally unique cities in the country, it's easy to see what he meant. Of course, it's the birthplace of Jazz and home of epic Mardi Gras celebrations, but the city itself has much more depth than that, including legendary cuisine, historic architecture and a buzzing nightlife. Spring is one of the best times to make your way to NoLa, not only so you can avoid the sweltering summer temperatures, but also so you can take advantage of the New Orleans Jazz Festival, French Quarter Festival and Bayou Boogaloo.
