Renting a Cheap Apartment in New Orleans

New Orleans was founded by the French Mississippi Company in 1718, and saw periods of French and Spanish imperial control before it was sold to the U.S. as part of the Louisiana Purchase. At the terminus of the Mississippi River, New Orleans has always been an important port city for supplying the Eastern and Southern United States with products unloaded at the port of New Orleans and transported to points beyond. Devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, New Orleans has worked hard to recover from the flooding caused by this natural disaster, which killed 1,500 people and left thousands more homeless. But this is still the home of Mardi Gras (Carnival), the annual celebration of revelry that attracts thousands of visitors from around the world for drink, beads and songs on the Tuesday before Lent. New Orleans is still considered one of the most culturally rich and diverse cities in the U.S.
