New Orleans, Louisiana
Over Da River Is Algiers Point: by Leon Schwarzbaum.
At the foot of Charles Street, join the Algerians (that's right,
Algerians) commuting via the free ferry across the Mississippi River to Algiers Point and Old Algiers. Go, as the natives
say, "over da river" and back in time.

gamble and they come to eat. Tourists come to New Orleans to let the good times roll. But
some are drawn by the cooking

early 1800's in the heart of the French Quarter.
Discovering the French Quarter: by Lee Ann Paradise.
Known for its sumptuous culinary delights and some of the best jazz
music in the world, a visit to New Orleans, Louisiana wouldn't be complete without time
spent in the famed French Quarter.
Magazine Street: by Leon Schwarzbaum.
For six miles, parallel to the Mississippi River, uptown (upriver) from
Canal Street at the edge of the French Quarter, to Audubon Park, Magazine Street evokes images of New York's East
Village and Los Angeles' Melrose Avenue.
New Orleans Swamp Romp: by Priscilla Estes.
Opportunities abound for adventure. Swamp land surrounds the island of
New Orleans, creating countless bayous, wetlands and waterways, and a generous variety of
swamp tours. From a rustic canoe for two to a fancy schooner for 50, there are swamp
jaunts to float everybody's boat.
The King of All Jazz Festivals: by Rita Cook.
For more than 30 years, New Orleans has consistently thrown the jazz festival of all jazz festivals with the likes
of Fats Domino, Bruce Hornsby, Earth, Wind and Fire, Al Jarreau and the Neville Brothers
live on stage.
Where the Ghouls Are: by Kimberly Reed Barker.
With an history rich in deviant behavior ghostbusters, researchers,
paraspsychologists and scam
artists come to investigate the musty streets of the French Quarter for specters and
ghouls who were killed violently during years gone by.
While the ghosts of New
Orleans can't find peace because of how they died, the ghostbusters can't find peace
until they prove they're out there.
