NEW ORLEANS - July 31, 2014 - The New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) invites New Orleans residents to enjoy all that our wonderful city has to offer through the 2014 Be a Tourist in Your Own Hometown and COOLinary New Orleans campaigns. The Be a Tourist and COOLinary restaurant month campaigns encourage locals to experience their hometown through the eyes of visitors while supporting the businesses that have made New Orleans one of the most popular travel destinations in the world - and one of Travel + Leisure's World's Best Cities.

Be a Tourist in Your Own Hometown (August 1-September 30) promotes summer specials on tours, attractions, hotels and more through www.touristathome.com. Returning to the program this year is the popular social media contest, where followers of the CVB's Instagram (@NewOrleansCVB) and Twitter (@NewOrleans) accounts are encouraged to submit a photo pertaining one of four themes (family, food, history and culture) using the hashtag #BeATouristNOLA for a chance to win a staycation grand prize package. Weekly winners will be chosen on Mondays, with the grand prize staycation winner announced in October. Locals can visit touristathome.com/social-media-contest for a complete listing of the official rules.

During the month of August is the 10th annual COOLinary New Orleans Restaurant Month which offers special two and three-course lunch menus for $20 or less and three-course dinner menus for $35 or less at more than 55 premiere restaurants across the city. For the full list of restaurants participating, visit www.coolinaryneworleans.com.

"New Orleans is continually recognized as one of the world's premiere destinations, and summer is the perfect time for New Orleanians to take advantage of their own city as a rewarding respite from their busy lives," said Stephen Perry, President and CEO, New Orleans CVB. "Be a Tourist in Your Own Hometown gives locals a wonderful opportunity, with special pricing and discounts, to stay in our hotels, visit our museums and art galleries and dine in our more than 1,400 restaurants. These cultural assets are what make New Orleans the one-of-a-kind destination that it is and entice locals to reconnect with the aspects they love about New Orleans, from food to music to nighttime strolls in the French Quarter. New Orleanians each year jump at the chance to dive back into their own beloved city."

 

The New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau is a nationally accredited, 1,100-member destination marketing organization and the largest and most successful private economic development corporation in Louisiana. The CVB and its members influence thousands of decision-makers and millions of visitors to choose New Orleans through direct sales, marketing, public relations, branding and visitor services at our New Orleans headquarters and offices in Chicago, Washington, D.C. and four foreign countries. Consistently recognized as one of the top five CVBs in the country, the New Orleans CVB celebrates its 54th anniversary in 2014.
