THE CITY: New Orleans is a major United States port and the largest city and metropolitan area in the state of Louisiana. The city was established by French colonists and strongly influenced by both the French and African cultures. New Orleans is well known for its distinct French and Spanish Creole architecture, as well as its cross-cultural and multilingual heritage. Often described as the most unique city in the country, New Orleans is famous for its cuisine, music (particularly as the birthplace of jazz), and its many annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras. With such a rich cultural and social environment, combined with favorable business conditions, New Orleans is drawing increasing numbers of major corporate entities, as well as small businesses, to locate in the region.
