New Orleans exudes a character all its own and offers a lifestyle that no other U.S. city can match. It’s home to an unparalleled blend of cultures. World-class music, dining and shopping are just the beginning. 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. Professional sports, gorgeous city parks, year-round festivals, prestigious academic centers and universities, and Southern hospitality await you. 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. You’ll fall in love the minute you set foot here, both personally and professionally.
