Introducing New Orleans
Centuries merge and cultures mingle along the exotic, Gothic streets of New Orleans. The historic French quarter seduces with its exquisite beauty. Dilapidated Creole cottages rub shoulders with opulent Spanish colonial villas adorned with ornate, wrought iron balconies, and courtyards infused with the aromas of jasmine and honeysuckle. New Orleans is one sensual pleasure layered on top of another. African, Spanish, French, Italian and Caribbean restaurants— Galatoire’s, French 75 Bar, Arnaud’s for starters—point to the city’s rich cultural heritage. At any hour, music, ranging from the mellifluous to downright obscene, seeps from every nook and cranny and even the most rigid of hips can’t help but undulate and groove in the city’s smoky bars, packed dance halls, and sultry clubs.
That is until the early hours when the desire for beignets at Café du Monde becomes too overwhelming. One of the oldest cities in the U.S., it comes as no surprise that this mystical port city, saturated with voodoo and sexual permissiveness, has been the setting for vampiric tales for decades. Fans of Ann Rice still make the pilgrimage to her former home in the eerily romantic Garden District. New Orleans’s supernatural aura culminates in the city’s ethereal cemeteries where voodoo priests, chess players, jazz musicians, and many a mayor are buried in tombs which display some of the most extravagant funereal sculptures of any cemetery.
