1. St. Louis Cathedral

You can’t make a trip to Nola without seeing the St. Louis Cathedral for yourself. It was built in 1794 for the King of France and is now the oldest cathedral in the United States. It’s by far the most iconic landmark in the City and the crown jewel of the French Quarter. A small piece of old world Europe is right here in modern day America for you to experience!

2. Café du Monde

The café first opened in 1862 and is still up and running in its original location! It serves the most authentic and delicious New Orleans cuisine: beignets! People come worldwide to try the classic French pastry and café au lait. Come see and taste New Orleans history!


3. Streetcar

The streetcars are an important distinguishing characteristic of New Orleans. They started in the mid 1830s and have continuously played a key role in public transportation since. The St. Charles streetcar line is the longest and oldest operating line in the city (also not to mention the prettiest). A bright red streetcar passes through huge oak trees and beautiful Victorian style mansions on St. Charles Ave.


4. Hot Tin Bar

This bar sits on top of the Pontchartrain Hotel. Besides its cool décor and lovely cocktails, the view is what sets it apart from the rest. Go out onto their balcony and get the best view of the New Orleans skyline.

5. Greetings from Nola Mural

This spray-painted mural was done by an artist couple traveling all over the U.S. At every stop they leave a new mural behind creating the most instagrammable walls in the country! This spot is the perfect picture to kick off your Nola themed feed!


6. The Miltenberger House

There is a good chance that you may have actually seen this building before! From postcards to travel websites to one of the most photographed buildings in the Quarter, this creole mansion is everywhere, and for good reason. It was built 1838 and still has all of its old New Orleans charm. It’s a great example of French Quarter architecture and includes three beautiful wrap-around balconies overlooking the corner of Dumaine and Royal St.


7. Uneeda Biscuit

With a quick glance you might miss it, but if you look up, you’ll experience a part of history from 1899. Our very own property acted as a billboard in the first million dollar ad campaign! The “Uneeda Biscuit” sign is still painted on the side of the French Quarter Mansion and has been featured in many movies. Not only can you take a picture of the building, but you can stay in it too! It has newly renovated rooms and of course all of the same New Orleans charm on the outside.


8. City Park Langles Bridge

The park is full of beautiful spots, but Langles Bridge is definitely close to being the most picturesque. This stone bridge looks like it was almost taken out of a painting. It’s located over the Small Lake and is surrounded by a forest of 80 foot tall Oak Trees. The Oak Trees are what make City Park, as there are over 30,000 trees! City Park is home to the oldest grove of mature live oak trees in the world!


9. Carousel Bar

The Carousel Bar is known throughout the whole city for being one of a kind. It is the only revolving bar in New Orleans and has an actual carousel top along with hand-painted chairs. Vogue Living featured it in their top 20 bars in the country for its circus-themed merry go round and delicious cocktails. The bar also has its Carousel Lounge for additional seating and often hosts live music. Your photo will be just as unique as the bar!

10. Columns Hotel

Walking through the front entrance of the Columns Hotel is like walking into a different era. The Italianate style house was built in 1883 with the most extravagant elements of its time. Fortunately, the hotel has kept all of its grandeur and elegance, making it a member on the National Register of Historic Places. The Hotel is also ranked nationally for its award-winning Victorian Lounge Bar. The preserved Victorian style and lavishness of the Columns makes for a timeless photo you can’t find anywhere else.
