New Orleans is unlike any other place in the United States. It’s as if this little city on the bayou is its own city-state, defying the country that it ostensibly calls home. This outsider status, coupled with the beauty and history of one of the most vibrant cultures in North America, is a potent recipe for attraction that’s bringing Unicorn Booty down south.
So if you have never been down to the Big Easy before, here are seven reasons why you will fall madly in love with New Orleans. Please use the page numbers to thumb through!
1. The Music
Music is like air in New Orleans. You need it to breathe, and thankfully the musicality of the city is everywhere. Each air molecule is electrified by the smallest vibration, and your ear becomes attuned to even the faintest sound of lips hitting a reed or fingers strumming a cello. At every turn there is music: a band playing on the corner, a four-piece quartet jamming in the nook of a sweaty bar, a solo soprano practicing in her room. After all, this is the birthplace of jazz – and that legacy continues.
If you love the way that a beloved song can wash over you like a warm wave of bliss, then you will most certainly swoon at the sounds of the Big Easy.
