Review New Orleans
They don't call it the "friendly south" for no reason here in New Orleans. In my experience I have found that the locals in New Orleans are quick to help confused or lost tourists, and eager to make friendly conversation. In addition, the food in this city is some of the best a person can ever have in their lifetime! From cajun to creole, this bustling city has it all. The population is comprised of a diverse and progressive demographic, who are confident to make a positive impact in the United States, even by just making changes at the local level. Furthermore, I do think the city would benefit from more public planning and funds invested into the potholes that plague the driving roads. They can be quite dangerous, especially during less than desirable weather. Besides that, anyone who is considering visiting or moving to New Orleans should come down and join the community that is commonly referred to as the "friendly south."
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.
My family visited New Orleans the year before Hurricane Katrina hit. New Orleans is a beautiful place! The Garden District, and all of the ornate architecture found therein: Perfection. New Orleans is home to many people who still practice Voodoo; most of which visit the tomb of Marie Laveau and pray to the deceased Voodoo practitioner. Seeing New Orleans, though beautiful, wouldn't be considered the safest place at night, unless you stay on the world famous Bourbon Street. Bourbon Street; located in the French Quarter, is home to many of the local bars and restaurants. The food is amazing, and so are the signature drinks that could be found at each bar! All together I would definitely recommend this area to anyone that asked me.
