Three must-see places in NOLA during Xerocon

March 8, 2022

New Orleans is known as the birthplace of jazz, the ‘Hollywood of the South’, and Crescent City – a place truly filled with life, music, and history; therefore, the perfect setting to bring our accounting community together. When you arrive at Xerocon, you’ll find an immersive experience where you can connect and learn from other practices as well as bond with your local Xero team…so, why not share the NOLA vibes together?

Treat yourself to delicious culinary delights

Just 1.7 miles from the New Orleans Convention Center and on the banks of the Mississippi River lies the historic heart of the city – French Quarter. The French Quarter tops the list of places to visit for most visitors of NOLA because you are able to get a true taste of the NOLA culture. If you’re up for a snack before dinner with your new accounting friends, then be sure to treat yourself to one of NOLA’s culinary delights – the beignet. From souvenirs to the streets filled with jazz music, the French Quarter is the place to go to enjoy the energy of New Orleans.

Take a cruise down the Mississippi

Got $2 to spare? That’ll get you a quick ferry ride experience on the Mississippi River. However, if you want to get fancy then you can stick out your pinky finger and rent a riverboat for an evening of food, drink, and music with your team. A cruise is an experience that accommodates most, whether you have a little or a lot of time to spare while in NOLA..

Enjoy natural sights at the New Orleans City Park

New Orleans may be known for a lot of things – amazing food, lively music, fun drinks and entertainment; therefore, New Orleans isn’t quite known for its nature. However, with1,300 acre public park to explore, less than 7 miles from the Xerocon venue, there is plenty for the nature-lovers among us. Surround yourself with centuries old oak trees as you stroll through the public park passing museums, a sculpture garden, and cafes where you can stop for a quick pick-me-up. And if that doesn’t meet your needs, the park even holds different sporting activities including mini golf. Even a nature trail in New Orleans holds so much magic!
