When to Visit
New Orleans is in a semi-tropical climate, meaning the weather doesn’t usually get crazy cold. It does, however, get brutally hot in July and August. My favorite months of the year here are March, April, the first half of May, the last half of September, and October. Spring in New Orleans is particularly lovely, with many flowers blooming and everything becoming lush and beautiful. That’s not to say that the weather in other months can’t also be very nice (shorts on Christmas have not been unknown). Except for July and August. They don’t deserve to be mentioned in polite company.
