1 Suck on a crawfish head

You can't say you've done New Orleans without mastering the art of eating crawfish. Order a pound of boiled crawfish at Acme Oyster then get down to business.

2 Buy some love potion at Marie Leaveau's House of Voodoo

The famous voodoo priestess Marie Leaveau is a notorious New Orleans character, and you can learn about her fascinating and tumultuous life story.

3 Order a drive-through Daquiri

Yes, that's right. You can order cocktails "to go" in New Orleans. Of course, we encourage everyone to do this in moderation.

4 Cool off with a New Orleans snowball

Snowballs are New Orleans' unique take on a cool summer treat. Hansen's Sno-Bliz is one of, if not the, most popular spots to order one. The list of flavors is long - we like chocolate and condensed milk.

5 Down a Jacques-Imo's Café po boy

Famous for its fried roast beef po boys and alligator cheesecake, Joaquimo's is right next door to another New Orleans institution - see No. 21

6 Spend Christmas in New Orleans

New Orleans is a great place for Christmas. The streets are lit up, actors dressed in period costume wander about, and you feel like you have the city all to yourself. Oh, and the weather is glorious.
