New Orleans – Top 10 Destination 2018

Frommer’s travel experts called New Orleans one of the best destinations to visit in the world in 2018.

As New Orleans reaches its tricentennial, there’s a lot to celebrate.

Frommer’s has named the city as one of 18 “incredible places that will give you the trip of a lifetime.”

“Being listed as one of the top places to visit in 2018 by Frommer’s is one of the highest honors a city can receive,” New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation President and CEO Mark Romig said.

 

“Each and every day we’re putting messages out there about new Orleans being a very welcoming city. A city rich in culture, food, architecture, music, great history, and we’re culminating it with the great celebration throughout all of next year in 2018,” Romig said.

The celebrations will begin as early as the first day of next year.

“We’ll kick it off a big way of course on New Years Eve night with a fireworks display at midnight, and then throughout the entire 2018 we have a number of events, symposia, concerts, fireworks, international visits,” Romig said.

He said this is in addition to the 138 festivals of the year.
