NEW ORLEANS INFORMATION

Found in 1717 by the French, New Orleans is one of the oldest cities in the United States. Located in the Mississippi River Delta, New Orleans is the largest city in the State of Louisiana. The city is known as the birthplace of jazz, for its food and music, and the annual Mardi Gras. Because of its location in the Mississippi River Delta, New Orleans is one of the busiest and largest ports in the world. Most of the country's refining and production of petroleum occurs here. Much of the area was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005, but much of the downtown area has been restored. New Orleans is the home to two professional franchises, the Hornets (NBA) and the Saints (NFL) who play at the Louisiana Superdome.
