Your Weekly Travel Zen: New Orleans

new orleans

This week's Moment of Travel Zen comes to us from Miranda Santiago. Of her photo of Lafayette Cemetery Number One in the Garden District she says:

"Part of what I love about the city is its ability to celebrate life... even after death. The above-ground cemetery had a lightness to its Gothic detail that was uniquely beautiful and alive."

From its many historic sites to the festive, always-ready-to-party atmosphere, New Orleans is a magical escape. Enjoy the city's music, food and architecture year round and make a trip during Mardis Gras season for the greatest party ever.
