New Orleans is known for being unlike any other city in the US, both culturally and aesthetically. With its heavy French influences, it has a far less ‘structured’ appearance than some US cities, giving it a great character. Lively and exciting, the city has a fantastic buzz and a relaxed, laid-back atmosphere, making it a great city to settle in.
On moving to New Orleans, expats may find the city is very easy to navigate on foot, and there are also some excellent transportation links to get around town. Expats living in the city will also get the chance to experience its famous Streetcars, which were featured in the Tennessee Williams play A Streetcar Named Desire. Thanks to its mostly flat land, it is also an excellent city for cycling.
New Orleans is famous internationally for its likeable, welcoming and friendly people, who go out of their way to help. There is a great sense of community in the city and residents are more than happy to help newcomers settle in – ask them about their city and for directions and you’re sure to get an enthusiastic and welcoming response.
New Orleans is described as having a ‘humid subtropical’ climate involving mild winters, which are relatively short, and particularly hot and humid summer periods. Temperatures can dip over the winter months, although instances of snow and freezing temperatures are rare, with the lowest ever recorded temperature being 6°F (-14°C), way back in 1899. While the summers bring with them the warmest months, they also tend to bring the wettest weather, and the driest days of the year tend to occur during the fall, particularly in October.
