Recently named one of the most romantic North American getaways by readers of USA Today and 10 Best, New Orleans is the best place to visit with your loved one. Whether for weddings, a Valentine's getaway, rekindling an old romance or starting a new one, our southern hospitality and friendly culture inspire guests to slow down, relax and enjoy the important things in life - your loved ones. Maybe it's the vestiges of our French culture, but the joie di vivre, or joy of life, and appreciation for good food, drink and company have created a special place for lovers.

Elegant hotels, gas lamp-lit streets and some of the best music around make for a romantic backdrop where visitors ease into the environment of beauty and pleasure that surrounds them. Here you'll find intimate restaurants with hidden courtyards where multi-course meals are prepared with care and allow time for true conversation and laughter. 

Of course, if you're single and ready to mingle, New Orleans is still the place to be. Famous for spell-binding love potions and ventures in Voodoo, the famed Marie Laveau's hometown will help you mesmerize your future companion. Visit the Marie Laveau House of Voodoo on Bourbon Street, or the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum in the Vieux Carre to find the perfect remedy for your Valentine's Day in the Crescent City. 

See below for examples of some of our most romantic restaurants, cocktail bars, accommodations and attractions to help you create the trip of a lifetime.
