What you'll do

The Crescent City has long been a seedbed for creativity and culture—but now, perhaps more than ever, New Orleans is in the midst of a renaissance. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina and the devastating floods that followed, the city found an opportunity to reinvent itself, bolstering its rich cultural traditions, restoring historic landmarks, and creating new space for existing voices. From the centuries-old city squares in the French Quarter to the burgeoning artist communities of the Lower Ninth Ward, we’ll traverse the city with one foot rooted firmly in its history and the other in what’s just beginning to take shape. We’ll spend most of our time weaving through residential neighborhoods, where most of the city’s artists, creators, and community builders can be found busy at work. We’ll immerse ourselves in New Orleans music, history, and cuisine—learning about this vibrant, ever-changing culture from the people who breathe life into it each day. This trip is offered by Atlas Obscura. Once you've reserved your spot, our team will be in touch to help you prepare for the trip. Please note that transportation to and from New Orleans is not included in the trip cost. This trip is limited to 12 travelers.
