Few cities in America carry quite so much history and character as New Orleans. As one of the continent’s most important port cities for the better part of three centuries, the Crescent City has always been a magnet for international influence, with people from across the world passing through and leaving their mark. The result is the New Orleans we see today, with three hundred years of music, food, art, architecture, and traditions from around the globe mixing into something completely unique. The entertainment and nightlife extend far outside of the infamous Bourbon Street, with hundreds of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, theaters, and other attractions that are often even more popular among locals than tourists. From a practical standpoint, New Orleans is an attractive option for everyone from corporate professionals to college students to bohemian artists. The cost of living is low, and rentals tend to be very affordable, even in the more popular districts. An enormous number of houses, apartments, and condos are in historic buildings, allowing the spirit of the city’s past to come alive even if you’re just sitting at home. The city’s streetcars are more than just historic remnants kept in place for tourists – thousands of locals ride the streetcars every day to get to work, school, or just to run errands.
