We get around a little differently here. With a little inside info, finding your way around 新奥尔良 is a cinch.

First thing: directions like north and south are virtually unknown here. 我们靠风景导航. So, north toward the lake and the Causeway is lakeside, south to the river is riverside. West becomes uptown, and east becomes downtown.

Second, we travel by neighborhood, driving over to Carrollton or into 马里尼郊区. The National Register of Historic Places has designated 17 National Historic Districts in 新奥尔良. Two of them—the French Quarter and Garden District—are also National Historic Landmarks. Don’t worry, though: you’ll know your way around in no time.



新奥尔良 began with the Vieux Carré, or the French Quarter—a square that hugs an elbow curve in the Mississippi River. The architecture is European and Creole, 颜色是加勒比的, and the festive lifestyle is a 新奥尔良 trademark. For 300 years, it has been the heart of the city, centered on Jackson Square. It’s home to these spots and much more:

  • 法国市场
  • 河边漫步
  • 美洲水族馆
  • 西班牙广场
  • 博物馆
  • 餐厅
  • Enough activity for a lifetime of sightseeing

Head downriver to the east (if you must have a compass point), and you'll find the first suburb, 马里尼郊区, dating from the early 18th century. 在这里, Washington Square is the oasis and Frenchmen Street is the center of the club activity and live music.


Lovely mansions and Creole cottages dominate the expanse of Esplanade, scattered with occasional monuments. It’s home to the Fair Grounds Race Course by Churchill Downs, and ends at lovely Bayou St. John and City Park—home to the 新奥尔良 Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, 和1,500 acres of botanical gardens, 体育场馆, 主题公园, 儿童活动.

The Central Business District

这是上城区, 位于法国区以西, 运河街对面, where the Americans first settled when Creoles wanted to keep the French Quarter to themselves. With a mix of office and industrial buildings centered on Lafayette Square, 这个地区有, 在过去十年中, become a flourishing arts and residential district. Wonderful architectural conversions have created a neighborhood of galleries, 餐厅, 和工作室.


The neighborhood’s two sections, the Lower Garden District and the Garden District, were both subdivided from plantations. The Lower Garden District is more cottage than mansion. Named for its origins (lower on the social scale than the Garden District proper), this is an architectural buffet of Greek Revival, 维多利亚时代, 还有历史悠久的农舍风格. A few sophisticated townhouses gather around Coliseum Square, with its antique ambiance.


From the French magasin, meaning “shop,” 这个地区有 a hip, laid-back style. In fact, it’s been called one of the coolest neighborhoods in the U.S., on par with Greenwich Village.


Uptown is heart and home to chic boutiques and a multitude of eateries and outdoor cafés, where the sound of screen doors shutting and oyster shells opening is music to the ears. It’s also where you’ll find the Loyola campus. The architecture is diverse; the landscape is green with live oaks; and the air is perfumed by sweet olive trees, 木兰花朵, 还有夜茉莉花.









We could talk about our fair city all day, but the only way to truly get a taste is to experience it for yourself. We invite you to come explore 新奥尔良 and the Loyola campus.
