It's going down in New Orleans's Downtown CBD

Once the workaday domain of the suit-and-tie crowd, these days, New Orleans's Downtown CBD is a vibrant, dynamic neighborhood with a contemporary feel all its own, and enough restaurants, theaters, and nightlife to put Times Square to shame. You can take in scenic views of the Mississippi River from top-floor restaurants in the district's numerous skyscrapers, then stroll among the boutiques, galleries, and cafes of the neighborhood's charming streets. And with a Downtown CBD, New Orleans vacation rental, you'll be just a hop, skip, and a jump from the historic sights, sounds, and tastes of the venerable French Quarter.

Making tough decisions in the Big Easy

New Orleans is a thriving, cosmopolitan town, and the Downtown CBD is no exception _ the biggest problem you'll have will be choosing what to see. You'll find a wealth of shops and restaurants right outside the door of your Downtown CBD vacation rental, and the nearby Lafayette Square Conservancy hosts a free summer concert series in a postage-stamp-sized city park. You can enjoy plenty of festivals and street fairs throughout the year _ from the infamous Mardis Gras parade down to lesser-known events like the Creole Tomato Festival.
