Ports

New Orleans is in one of the two USA’s regions located below the sea level. The city is birthplace of jazz and is well-known for its rich multicultural scene. Take a look at the European architecture in The French Quarter. Go to the Uptown, the city’s most historic district. Check out the beautiful sculptures and tombs in one of 42 famous cemeteries. Take part in festivals, visit the museums and music events full of historic heritage.

St Petersburg is a city in Western Florida, across the Tampa Bay from it’s larger neighbour-city, Tampa. It’s a city that caters to both cultural-minded tourists and those who want to bask in the Floridian sun with a cocktail in hand. Take a surreal trip through the Salvador Dali museum before exploring the sub-street-level oasis of the Sunken Gardens (complete with Flamingos). Alternatively, find an early-20th Century beachfront hotel, and watch the sunset.
