Come to New Orleans, and chances are good that you’ll leave with a story. Maybe about the time you fell in love over your first beignets (or perhaps just with the beignets themselves), or about how you danced way past midnight with friends on Frenchmen Street, or how a local bartender tipped you off on where to find the best crawfish in town.
That’s because New Orleans is a city built on stories. 300 years of them. Stories about pirates and cajuns, about French teenagers bluffing British war ships. About a Creole matriarch feeding the Civil Rights movement and an engineer building boats to win World War II. And for centuries these stories, and other great ones, have all started with the same line: One Time in New Orleans.
For our City’s Tricentennial, we’ve captured some of our best stories to spark your imagination, pay homage to hometown heroes, and hopefully inspire you to come visit and start your own story here. You can do this in few ways:
