Have a few days to spare in New Orleans? You’ll want to make the most of them, especially with a Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express! Here’s what you can do:
Dance at Coyote Ugly
Don’t miss your chance to visit this iconic locale with bartop dancing and great music. You can get up and show your moves; our own Lisa Niver did, with hula hoops to boot!
Take a stroll on the Riverwalk
You can’t visit New Orleans and not take in the river; go see gigantic cruise ships in the harbor then head over to Mardi Gras World. Here, you can even choose a fun outfit and pretend to be part of the action!
Go to a parade! There’s always a party in New Orleans
The St. Joseph’s Parade is a celebration of Italian-American culture. The parade marches through the French Quarter/Central Business District and is filled with live performances as well as beautifully-decorated floats passing out flowers and beads.
Wander through the Audubon Insectarium
The Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium is a great place to venture solo or with the family. Learn about the multitude of different species and see the butterfly development process in the Metamorphosis room.
Explore the French Quarter
This is the oldest neighborhood in New Orleans and has been designated a National Historic Landmark. Get a coffee and a famous beignet from original coffee stand, Cafe Du Monde. The United States Mint and various markets are awaiting you as well!
