New Orleans is known as the birthplace of jazz, but it’s also where the genre grew and matured into homegrown American music. You’ll find jazz music inside bars and out in the streets—here are our favorite ways to tap your toe around the city.

Jazz Concerts and Music Tours
Most of the biggest names in jazz have spent time in New Orleans, and you can walk in their footsteps by visiting their haunts on a walking tour around town. Hear their stories and check out the spots where they honed their silky smooth sounds, and then bring the day to a soulful close by crawling through multiple jazz clubs full of trumpets, piano, and sax.

Jazz Cruises
It’s hard to get more authentically New Orleans than enjoying live jazz as you cruise up the Mississippi River on a paddlewheeling steamboat. Schedule an evening dinner cruise for sunset out on the river, or start your day of exploring New Orleans with a festive brunch on the water.

Jazz Dining Experiences
Whether it’s sitting in the front row at an intimate jazz bar along world-famous Frenchmen Street or sampling Creole étouffée while listening to jazz at brunch, blend the culinary and musical heritage of America’s famous port town with a jazz dining experience.
