Overview of New Orleans

Find the perfect New Orleans apartments for rent and make America's favorite Mardi Gras city your new home. New Orleans still has many Creole traditions today that are vastly different than other American cities. Through the centuries, New Orleans has guarded its culture and way of life, prevailing French language of the city, its dominant Catholicism and its deeply rooted Creole or native population and their traditions. New Orleans is known as America's birthplace of Jazz music, and according to the city's history, New Orleans was the only place in the new world where slaves were allowed to own drums. With collaboration between musicians over the years, jazz was born. You may have to discover this historic music for yourself, but residents of New Orleans apartments will attest that no one does jazz better than New Orleans.
