A Visit to New Orleans

New Orleans has been described as the most unique city in the United States. Its historic heart is the French Quarter, known for its French and Spanish Creole architecture and vibrant nightlife along Bourbon Street. We look at its early settlement, the French Quarter and the Garden District. We discover the need for the Levees, take a ride on the St. Charles trolley car and visit two museums – the Confederate Museum and the Museum for WWII.
