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 Act as your own tour guide

One of the best ways to see the Garden District is at your own pace. Grab a guidebook, and your walking shoes, then go for a long stroll down the pretty tree lined streets.

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 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

5 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.

6 Go to Jazzfest

An incredible 10 days of music and culture. Too many big names to mention. Incredible food. Enough culture to last you a whole year.
