The New Orleans I love is not only about partying, but also the charm of its architecture and the diversity of our citizens. In the Post-Katrina age, New Orleans has the welcome mat out bigger than ever. It was hit hard, but I still love it and it is still here. Mardi Gras hosted over three hundred thousand visitors. Five hundred thousand attended the Jazz and Heritage Festival!
As one of North America's most distinctive and culturally diverse cities, New Orleans located in southeastern Louisiana on the Mississippi River, about 180 km (about 110 mi) from the Gulf of Mexico. The city was founded in 1718 on the east bank of the Mississippi and south of Lake Pontchartrain. New Orleans, named for Philippe II, Duc d'Orleans, regent of France under Louis XV, has been a leading commercial center since its founding and has one of the most active ports in the United States. After World War II (1939-1945), the city is rich cultural heritage contributed to its emergence as a major international tourist center.
With an average daily temperature range of 5 C (42 F) to 16 C (61 F) in January and 23 C (73 F) to 33 C (91 F) in July, New Orleans has a semitropical climate. The city averages 157 cm (62 in) of precipitation per year.
New Orleans, near the Gulf Coast, is vulnerable to tropical storms.
