Settled by the French in 1718 as a strategic outpost near the mouth of the Mississippi River, ruled by the Spanish for 40 years and significantly impacted by people of African descent, New Orleans has become renowned for its well-into-the-night life, diverse musical offerings, festivals, Mardi Gras celebrations, Creole cuisine, nineteenth-century neighborhoods, and romantic strolls along the Mississippi River.
