One of the United States’ most important ports, New Orleans is located on the Mississippi River near the Gulf of Mexico. It is also one of the oldest cities in the country. The French founded New Orleans in 1718, when the region was still part of New France. To this day, the city’s culture and cuisine still have a distinct French flair. New Orleans was also owned for a time by Spain. Spanish influence can be seen in the architecture of the city’s oldest neighborhood, known as the French Quarter. The French Quarter is also home to many of the city’s most notable attractions including Bourbon Street, which is legendary for its restaurants, bars and nightlife. Known for its stately homes, the Garden District has many antiques stores and high- end restaurants and is home to the historic Lafayette Cemetery.
