New Orleans embraces tourism so much so that the city hosted nearly 11 million visitors last year, a number sure to be topped in 2018 — the city’s Tricentennial year. Because many tourists come to New Orleans to experience the city’s culture, food, music, and neighborhoods, it makes sense that they’ll discover some amazing homegrown experiences along the way. But do throngs of tourists really make a place bad? There’s a reason tourist “traps” are popular, so jump down off of that high horse and dive right in.
New Orleans hums with excellent restaurants known as much for the food and/or experience as they are for the lines of tourist stretching out the door. Consider this just a sample to get you started.
