The “Big Easy” is known for its non-stop-nightlife, vibrant music scene, and signature spicy cuisine that plays to its rich heritage of French, African, and American roots. Add to that three centuries of storied celebrations and culture, and it’s no surprise that the most creative second shelter seekers look to New Orleans.
Whether you’re on the hunt for the most authentic and mouth-watering beignets, looking to experience the best jazz on famed Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard, or fancy a stroll through the historic French Quarter, New Orleans has endless opportunities to take a step back in time and let loose. This begs the question: What can I get for $1 million in New Orleans? Here’s what I found.
