In a city known for pleasure, it’s no surprise New Orleans’ Central Business District (CBD) is much more than a commercial epicenter. Just across Canal Street from the French Quarter, the CBD is a popular choice among visitors who like to be close to the excitement but not quite in it. Running along Canal Street down to the Mighty Mississippi, the CBD boasts a wide variety of lunch spots, bars, shopping and entertainment.
Walk to the Mercedez-Benz Superdome to watch the New Orleans Saints take on an NFL rival, then make your way to a nearby bar for postgame drinks with friends. In the heart of the CBD, Lafayette Square entertains all ages with festivals and free concerts throughout the year.
