Part of the international 111 Places/111 Shops series, this insider's guide to New Orleans features places not found in traditional travel guides, and will appeal to the local and tourist markets alike.
The ultimate illustrated insider''s guide to New Orleans - Birthplace of Jazz, home to the world famous Mardi Gras, champion of voo-doo and vampires, purveyors of its own distinctive Creole and Cajun cuisines. New Orleans, once owned by France, then Spain, then France again, has a rich history that blends the unconventional with the orthodox to create a cultural collision unlike that found in any other city. This insider''s guide to New Orleans is shaped by portraits of the less obvious, hidden treasures rarely seen by the 10 million tourists who visit "The Big Easy" each year. From architecture that housed early jazz musicians and powerful madams; to bars that offer shot-and-a-haircut specials; to emblematic local eateries like Hansen''s Sno Bliz and Killer Po''boys; to the best places to buy a chartreuse-coloured beehive wig, Civil War cavalry sabre, or some swamp-grass gris gris, 111 Places in New Orleans will ensure that you experience the musical, spiritual, historical, edible, and quite often sinful side of America''s Most Interesting City. As noted musician and NOLA native Allen Toussaint once said, "To get to New Orleans, you don''t pass through anywhere else."
