Advantage New Orleans

New Orleans Living

New Orleans charms visitors and locals alike with its music, diverse cuisine and a stubborn refusal to abandon its cultural traditions. But what is truly wonderful about the Big Easy lies at its heart, the residents of New Orleans are infused with a resilient and welcoming spirit that celebrates eccentricity, draws out the timid and steadfastly resists outside influences that seek to homogenize them.

At the same time, it’s a small city with big city amenities. It’s walkable and bikeable, but it’s one of the few American cities with both an NFL and NBA team. Who Dat! Geaux Pelicans.

In short, New Orleans is home to the kind of unique culture that people worldwide seek out. The city is a focal point for the influx of millennials, America’s largest workforce. New Orleans also is home to the kind of forward thinking, inclusive environment corporations recognize and seek more and more.
