1 Watch jazz legend Ellis Marsalis tickle the keys

Make your dinner reservations for Friday night at Snug Harbor. This cozy restaurant and bar in the tucked-away neighborhood of the Marigny is the place to be Friday nights when when you might catch legendary jazz pianist Ellis Marsalis live.

2 Tour Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World

Visit the warehouses where they construct the giant floats of Mardi Gras at Mardi Gras World, and watch the artists first hand.

3 Take a pilgrimage to Preservation Hall

For a truly unique experience, not much comes close to Preservation Hall. This intimate birthplace of Jazz is about one thing - the music. You can soak up the atmosphere, and make a personal request with a contribution to the hat.

4 Wander among the tombs at Lafayette Cemetery

The mystery of New Orleans is everywhere in Lafayette Cemetery - wander between rows of above ground tombs and be transported to a place far from the present.

5 Tour Longue Vue House and Gardens

A Colonial Revival Estate built by Sears and Roebuck heir Edith Stern, Longue Vue is a must see, and its gardens are a great place to pretend you're a Southern belle.

6 Crash the Orpheuscapade
