New Orleans sits pretty at the top of TripAdvisor’s Top 10 Nightlife Destinations in the World list

Pushing through a tough economy and one heck of a hurricane, the Big Easy proves it can still show travelers a good time.  Even with Hurricane Katrina reconstruction in full swing in some parts of NOLA, it was recently named the top nightlife spot in the world by TripAdvisor. New Orleans welcomes guests with world-class dining, rockin’ clubs, and good ol’ Southern hospitality. In fact, continued tourism not only brings a smile to travelers’ faces but funds further reconstruction.

Unfamiliar with the Big Easy? Not a problem. Summer presents a great chance to get away, and get loose. Here are a few NOLA nights out to cross off your list:

*Make the rounds at Bourbon Street

*Sip one of 100 types of martinis at the Bombay Club

*Survey the Bourbon Bar at Pat O’Brien’s

*Listen to pure New Orleans jazz at Preservation Hall (no food or drink here, the music is the big draw.)

The best part? Whether you’re grabbing some late-night seafood at Acme Oyster House, or soaking up the ambience of Bourbon Street, you are personally helping New Orleans shine the way it was meant to.
