11 New Orleans Quotes to Inspire you to Plan a Trip and Use as Instagram Captions

Updated: Jul 29

St. Louis Cathedral, Jackson Square

I arrived in New Orleans in 1979, ready to experience everything it had to offer. As New Orleans does, it opened its heart to me. The people I met during my time there became lifelong friends. I fell in love my husband under the Spanish Moss draped Oak Trees along St. Charles Ave. We raised our children on boiled crawfish and trips to Audubon Zoo. We second lined through the French Quarter when our daughter got married in St Louis Cathedral.

We celebrated when the Saints won their first Super Bowl and cried for days after Katrina ripped through our beloved city. New Orleans is a city rich with history, frivolity and culinary delights.

Let these quotes inspire you to plan a trip.

“New Orleans is unlike any city in America. Its cultural diversity is woven into the food, the music, the architecture – even the local superstitions. It’s a sensory experience on all levels and there’s a story lurking around every corner.” Ruta Sepetys
