Christmas Lights Downtown NOLA

With the flip of a switch last week, Downtown New Orleans was lit for the holidays. More than ever before, there are millions upon millions of lights to been seen this year. Grab the kids, hop in the car and check out these beautiful and whimsical displays to get you into the holiday spirit.

Roosevelt Hotel Lobby

Start your tour indoors by taking a stroll through the Roosevelt Hotel lobby this December. The lobby runs for an entire city block and is a long time tradition that both visitors and locals can enjoy. You won’t want to miss this magical sight!

Miracle on Fulton Street

After your ride down Canal Street, head over to Fulton for a fun and festive affair. Beautifully decorated with lights, a giant orb and a decorated Christmas tree you can also catch Santa. Don’t forget to play in the snow as Fulton Street brings a winter wonderland down south. Be sure to check out the Harrah’s Hotel lobby to see the masterful gingerbread display paying homage to our historical city monument- St. Louis Cathedral.
