New Orleans has wonderful history and culture, but is primarily becoming a tourist destination. Service industry jobs are the biggest employment. On the whole, New Orleans is a nice place to live, with friendly locals and a very laid back attitude. We aren't called the big easy for nothing! Education is getting better, as public schools focus on a full score of enrichment in both arts and sciences. Even our public transportation company, the Regional Transport Authority, are trying to do more and be more. Temperate weather - aside from hurricane season - makes New Orleans a wonderful place to reside.
