The appeal of living in New Orleans is absolutely undeniable. The city exudes a character all its own and residents have a passionate attitude to life. New Orleans is an unparalleled blend of cultures. Regarded as a city of neighborhoods, New Orleans is best traveled by foot, but you can also hop on one of the city’s historic streetcars or join the growing legion of commuters by bicycle. NOLA’s neighborhoods each have a distinct architectural flavor and include everything from traditional Antebellum style to historic bungalows and cottages to modern lofts. Professional sports, gorgeous city parks, year-round festivals, prestigious academic centers and universities, and Southern hospitality are only the beginning. The local economy is diverse, with oil and gas, tourism, shipbuilding and aerospace among the top industries, along with health care and education; several world-class colleges and universities are situated here. If you’re craving the beach, the Gulf Shores of Alabama are about two and a half hours away by car; and the white sands of Pensacola, Florida, are just three hours away. It’s easy to understand why residents take great pride in calling New Orleans their home.
