Stroll through the French Quarter, sample the city's distinctive Creole cuisine, listen to the best live music, or take a post-Katrina drive to remember the victims – Fodor's New Orleans 2008 offers all these experiences and more! Our local writers have traveled throughout the country to find the best hotels, restaurants, attractions and activities to prepare you for a journey of stunning variety. Before you leave for your trip be sure to pack your Fodor's guide to ensure you don't miss a thing.
