Louisiana is famous for delicious food, rich culture, and extravagant parties during Mardi Gras. New Orleans, specifically, is a town with old money and a culture that lends to a high-class lifestyle. If you are looking to live it up in Louisiana, consider some of the following things to add to your repertoire. 

Art Galleries and Museums

The culture of New Orleans is synonymous with art and music, and the town itself is a historic monument to these crafts. Viewing the numerous art galleries and museums is entertaining on its own, but the real fun comes in finding unique one-of-a-kind historic pieces that you would not be able to find anywhere else. 

When you are talking about music and New Orleans, you have to be talking about Jazz. The city is home to the Jazz Museum, archiving the formation of music that defined an entire culture. Whether you are a fan of music history or are looking to add some new antique decor to your home, you are bound to find more than you’re looking for down on the bayou.

Shopping — Clothes, Jewelry, Antiques and More

While famous for the musical movement that exploded out of the city, you will also find a high-end shopping scene in New Orleans as well. Most of the luxury shops and boutiques are concentrated in the French Quarter. This is the oldest neighborhood in the city, and the entire area is considered a historic landmark. Here you’ll find just about anything you are looking for and maybe even something you’re not. 

Clothes are a must, but you can also find beautiful gold and ruby jewelry that will make a statement at your next party or be a wonderful gift. This section of New Orleans has boutiques for both men and women that have a chic but unique style that fits the feel of living the high life in Louisiana. 

In between the clothing stores, you can also find locations for luxury furniture and historic antiques. There is even a shop that offers a dark, gothic style of clothing if you are looking for something unique to make a statement or wear to a masquerade ball.

It wouldn’t be living in luxury if you couldn’t find different ways to spend your time and explore the city. Every trip to New Orleans starts with finding the right place to stay, and there is no place better or more iconic than the Ritz-Carlton. This hotel does a great job of mixing luxury and history, it is home to the Davenport Lounge, one of the best Jazz clubs in the city and a beautiful courtyard. 

Once you’ve found a place to stay, you will need to find a place to relax. You’ll find many spas across the city that will help you get perfectly pampered after a day of shopping in the French Quarter. Finally, you can end your night with a high-class dinner on an iconic riverboat cruise while being serenaded by jazz music. New Orleans is so packed full of historical spots that even the most well-versed connoisseur will have trouble knowing everything. 

If you are in Louisiana, you won’t want to miss out on all the amazing things the city of New Orleans has to offer. You will find yourself in a whirlwind of music, history, and culture. In the midst of this perfect storm, you will find that there is a high-class life that is like no other!
