“This summer is a wonderful time to experience New Orleans,” says Kim Priez, senior vice president of tourism at New Orleans & Company. “This FAM is a great opportunity to remember what visitors have missed about the Crescent City. With the increase in vaccine distribution, we are looking forward to welcoming guests in a safe way with continued COVID protocols in place, but there has never been a better time to enjoy our city’s authentic cuisine, attractions and live music.”
While taking advantage of hotel rates from fabulous New Orleans hotels during the Summer FAM, travel advisors can also request a VIP Pass to use during their stay. The pass provides travel professionals exclusive access to discounts and special offers at restaurants, museums and other popular attractions around New Orleans.

Safely Enjoying New Orleans
The City is currently in Phase 3 which means that restaurants and attractions are open at 75% and bars are open at limited capacity. Live music is limited but as always New Orleans business owners and musicians have gotten creative with outdoor shows and expanded outdoor seating for dining. Our community and the hospitality industry are taking the situation very seriously and striving to make New Orleans as safe as possible for all, especially our guests. We have instituted a NOLA Hospitality Safe Program through which hotels, restaurants, musicians and others have taken a pledge to follow COVID-19 reopening guidelines and guests are asked to do the same.
