10 Must-Do New Orleans Adventures

September 28, 2018

Visiting Louisiana can feel like visiting a foreign country. The food, the music, the architecture, even the accents all seem so… different. Especially when compared to the rest of America. Most people visit New Orleans as their first introduction to the Bayou State. And for good reason. It’s the cultural capital of the South and adventures await around every corner.

Southern Louisiana Swamp Tours, 10 Must-Do New Orleans Adventures

New Orleans Adventures Await

From stately plantations to eerie bayous, there are experiences to be had in indoors and out. Here are ten adventure ideas to make sure you get the most out of your trip to the Big Easy. Follow this list and you’ll definitely collect some enviable stories (and Instagram posts).

Get Down to Louisiana!

Get to know its past. The city of New Orleans—and the entire state of Louisiana—have had quite the history. Visit museums, hear stories, and immerse yourself in the lore and legend.  

Get scared. The crazy tales of Greater New Orleans include their share of ghost stories.  Think spooky above-ground cemeteries, a Civil War-era plantation, and the voodoo of Marie Laveau. Find a tour—or just a good local storyteller—and see if you get goosebumps.

Get on your feet! The music scene in New Orleans is unbeatable. Jazz, blues, zydeco, country—no matter the tune, someone’s always dancing. Jump on your feet, grab a partner, or swing it solo. Find live music in concert venues, music halls, bars, and even right on the corner of French Quarter streets.

Get spicy. Creole and Cajun cultures boast some flavorful—and famously spicy—cuisine. Eat your way through this delicious blend of cultures. Make sure to try the jambalaya, gumbo, and po’boys—and devour all the fresh seafood you can.

Get a sweet tooth. If you don’t think spice is nice, you can get it sweet as well. Beignets are a delicious, must-taste treat. Served with coffee and doused with powdered sugar, they’re perfect for breakfast. But we recommend enjoying them morning, noon, AND night.

Get a little wild. No trip to Louisiana is complete without experiencing its unique landscapes and waterways. We are the Bayou State after all! Sure, you could see some of it while driving over our many bridges. But nothing compares to speeding through them in an airboat. Imagine seeing alligators perched on logs and cypress trees dripping with moss. Intrigued? Airboat Adventures is just the place to make that happen.
