New Orleans Number 2 City
New Orleans’ big happy culture charms visitors once again!
New Orleans is a destination on many UK and Irish traveller’s bucket lists; this week the city’s Convention and Visitors Bureau offers a hint as to why when it announced that the Big Easy has once again ranked highly in USA publication Travel + Leisure’s listings.
New Orleans has been voted No. 2 city in the U.S. and Canada by the Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards 2015 readers’ survey. This is the twentieth year for the Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards, an annual readers’ survey that rates destinations, hotels, airports, cruise lines and more. For the second consecutive year, the city has been chosen as the number two destination in the US and Canada.
Stephen Perry, President and CEO of New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau, comments, “After a decade of unparalleled development, New Orleans is well into its renaissance. The historic and new restaurants, classic cocktails, jazz in the streets and French and Spanish architecture that we all love are still the soul of the city, but New Orleans is also blossoming with boutique hotels, world-class craft cocktail bars, new cuisine from new James Beard award-winning chefs and so much more”.
