    New Orleans is the city of the United States that has the most European “flavor” due to the influence of both the French and the Spanish ownership. Founded in 1718 by Jean Baptiste Le Moyne, ceded to the Spanish by Louis IV in 1762, the city became French again in 1800.   
    Added to that is the influences of the Acadians who came in 1763 from Nova Scotia.The resulting city is truly a “melting pot” of people, food and music and a lifestyle that is unlike any other major city in the United States. 
New Orleans has more to see and do than you can imagine!
