Once you have completed your vehicle purchase from Premier Clearance Center Westbank, you are sure to be ready to relax and enjoy the sights of New Orleans. This is not just any city in the United States. This locale has its own persona filled with jazz music, outstanding Creole cuisine, the din of a passing streetcar, and live oaks that have witnessed hundreds of years of excitement and life, New Orleans style.
Every visitor's first stop in New Orleans must be the French Quarter. This is where it all happens year-round, and it ratchets up a few dozen notches during Mari Gras. But for the majority of the year, Bourbon Street offers guests all the tastes, activities, excitement, and fanfare that the world knows as the French Quarter. Live music, pedestrian-friendly environs, to-go cups of adult beverages, and some of the best food on the planet awaits you in the French Quarter.
The Audubon Zoo and Aquarium is named after the famed naturalist John James Audubon lived in New Orleans. You can observe all of your favorite creatures, including Asian elephants, orangutans, lions, gorillas, giraffes, and rhinos. Also, because of the naturally hot, humid climate, the zoo offers a very realistic habitat called Louisiana Swamp that is home to leucistic alligators. Children and adults alike enjoy the hands-on learning, lessons about protection and conservation, and the ability to take what they have learned beyond this zoo's walls to make our world a better place for humans and animals.
There is no better investment of your time than to honor our nation's heroes. And a visit to the National WWII Museum is a fantastic way to learn about the rich historical contributions from New Orleans. For example, NOLA is the birthplace of the Higgins boats, which were pivotal in Normandy's invasion. In this one location, you will witness photographs, artifacts, and footage of some of the most famous moments in WWII and the part that New Orleans played in our country's success.
Located in the heart of the French Quarter, Preservation Hall is the home of over 350 acoustic New Orleans Jazz concerts each year. This historic location has witnessed moments of musical genius from names like George Lewis, Sweet Emma Barrett, De De Pierce, and too many more to list. A trip to Preservation Hall is like a trip back in time to what jazz once was throughout the region.
While this is not a single location, it is a single experience that no one should ever miss when visiting New Orleans. The St. Charles Avenue line is the oldest continuously operating street rail system in the world. The six-mile ride takes guests along the beautiful oak-lined streets of the city to see the mansions and parks that remain after hundreds of years. And clattering along on a streetcar, you will witness the city just as other guests have been seeing it since the 1830s.
