Tons of hol­i­day fun awaits you in the Cres­cent City! Dive into the col­or­ful past of this 300-year-old city—the birth­place of jazz, Amer­i­can opera and poker!— with a walk­ing tour from Free Tours by Foot, where you can ex­plore one of 20 of New Or­leans’ breath­tak­ing his­toric dis­tricts. Next, head over to the NOLA Christ­mas­fest to en­joy ice skat­ing, a carousel, ice slide and pho­tos with Santa. Af­ter work­ing up an ap­petite, visit the French Quar­ter to sa­vor au­then­tic Ca­jun cui­sine at An­toine’s Restau­rant, the old­est con­tin­u­ously op­er­at­ing restau­rant in Amer­ica. Then en­joy a cup of chicory cof­fee and a tra­di­tional red and green Christ­mas King cake from Bit­ter­sweet Con­fec­tions. As night falls, make your way to Royal Square and Chartres Street to marvel at the in­cred­i­ble twin­kling light dis­play as the joy­ful voices of car­ol­ers echo through the glow­ing streets— sim­ply mag­i­cal!
