New Orleans

Laissez Le Bons Temps Roulez (Let the Good Times Roll)

Ah yes, the Big Easy. If you’ve been there you know, if you haven’t you’re in for a treat. New Orleans (aka NOLA) is a place that defies easy explanation. The city’s attitude and atmosphere is totally unique. Fern loaded wrought iron balconies, gas lamps, cozy watering holes, classic streetcars, impromptu parades, eccentric costumes, live music everywhere, fantastic cuisine, and a whole lotta smiles.

Team INSTINT has had the good fortune to visit the city several times in 2016 and we continue to fall in love with the place. We recommend coming in a day or two before INSTINT kicks off to wander the city and experience it for yourself. You’ll be glad you did. Here’s a few our favorite things to do.


“New Orleans is unlike any city in America. Its cultural diversity is woven into the food, the music, the architecture – even the local superstitions. It’s a sensory experience on all levels and there’s a story lurking around every corner.”
–Ruta Sepetys
