Living in New Orleans, LA
Before the construction of the Erie Canal, New Orleans was the largest trade capital in the United States. The Spanish, French and Africans owned the city before The Louisiana Purchase in 1803, which added 828,000 square miles to the growing country. This blend of nations over the centuries developed what is known as Creole culture in southern Louisiana, and can be found everywhere: food, art, jazz, and even the way people talk to one another. For some, finding an apartment in New Orleans near one of the city's more vibrant parts of town, such as on Frenchman Street, is the main goal. The whole city itself is culturally significant, with over 35,000 buildings on the National Register, the most of any city in the United States.

According to Fortune magazine, one of the largest corporations based in New Orleans is Entergy. The company owns numerous power plants and supplies 2.8 million customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Entergy is located on Loyola Avenue, making the nearby area a great place to look for an apartment in New Orleans, especially with the Superdome just down the street.

New Orleans Entertainment and Attractions
With the many historical sites in the French Quarter like Bourbon Street and Jackson Square, all the way to the grandeur of the Old South boulevards that line the Garden District in Uptown, there is truly something for everyone here. One of the yearly events that is loved by tourists and locals alike is of course, Mardi Gras. The festival truly encompasses the diverse spirit of New Orleans and is perfect for anyone who likes festive drinks, jazz dancing and parades.
