Go There:

Start with a visit to the French Quarter, where every square inch bustles with street performers, mom-and-pop boutiques and vintage swagger. Opt for a little luxury with a stay at the new, brilliantly designed Saint Hotel on Canal Street. The serene rooms will provide a haven after a day in the city. While New Orleans boasts a wealth of world-class antiques stores, let’s be honest: You’re here to eat! Big Easy fare runs the gamut from mouthwatering street food—try a muffuletta at Cochon Butcher—to gourmet dishes at the likes of Galatoire’s to storied pour houses (e.g., Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop Bar, reputed to be the oldest bar in the United States). While out and about, keep your eyes peeled for Tuba Skinny. The jazz ensemble is straight out of a period flick and knows how to jam.—Elizabeth Doyle
