The “Big Easy” is famous the world over, and it’s a favorite stop of Sanjay Patil MD‘s. The city of New Orleans is an American treasure like no other, alive with color, steeped in history and shrouded in just a bit of tantalizing mystery. It’s a city of contradictions: a place of revelry and abandon, and a place of quiet churches, family gatherings and genteel Southern charm. It’s also the scene of one of the worst natural disasters ever to befall the United States, and a picture of American strength and resolve.

Mardi Gras is a given for many visitors, but even if living it up isn’t on your travel agenda, you’ll find a wealth of things to see, do and experience in this complex, beautiful city in Louisiana.

History buffs will enjoy visiting New Orleans’ many museums, which chronicle its multi-layered and unique history. They’ll also love visiting the city’s cemeteries, historic churches and iconic plantation homes, which give visitors a personal window into the past.

Those looking to absorb some local culture and experience the best of the city’s restaurants and nightlife will enjoy visiting the French Quarter, which is one of Sanjay Patil’s favorite places. Be a part of the action on Bourbon Street, or experience fine art in Royal Street’s famed galleries.

New Orleans also features a zoo, a butterfly garden, a wildlife refuge, an aquarium, number of outdoor parks, and everything from horse-drawn carriage rides to kayak tours to make your visit truly special.
