Join Ellen Coughlan as she explores the iconic city of New Orleans. Nicknamed the “Big Easy”, it’s known for it’s round the clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene and a spicy, singular cuisine… reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures.
New Orleans is famous for its Mardi Gras, where parades and street parties fill the city. But its a year-round party city, and the New Orleans’ Jazz influence is still present and an incredibly important part of the culture. It’s also home to the iconic Natchez Steam boat, the last completely steam powered paddleboat on the Mississippi River.
The second part of this Destination Special features more food, some cocktail making and a voyage on the beautiful Natchez.
