Atlanta , Safety:

Many people feel comfortable riding MARTA (the mass transit system) at night, and by most accounts is safe (others avoid it). Solo female travelers might want to select an alternate form of transportation in the evenings, but daytime travel is very safe and has lots of passengers who use it to travel to/from the airport.

Interstate driving is safe, but can tend to be harrying for those not accustomed to driving in large cities.

Outside the Perimeter (areas outside 285, particularly on the North side) are considered to be very safe

City rating:

I'd like to call this post "man you guys are nuts!" but I know how tough it is to compare places you haven't been to. So instead I'll just give my $0.02 in several areas. General Info: Also called the Manhattan of the South (maybe because we are an island unto ourselves). We're a city that has just about doubled every 20 years since 1950. We're now the 9th most populous metropolitan area in the US. That growth rate means huge population shifts - in our case, largely from other parts of the US and the world. WIth nearly 20% of the population speaking languages other than English at home, we're a pretty damn diverse crowd these days. Africans or African-Americans make up over 30% of the population; Latinos and Hispanics about 10%; Asians about 5%. That's greater diversity than New York, San Francisco and Miami. Different Stuff: Check out the Decatur bar scene. Little 5 Points or East Atlanta at any time of day or night. For the real adventurous spirit, check out the Claremont Lounge, Star Bar, The Majestic (after 2am). Don't miss: Anything. Stone Mountain Laser Show in the Summer, Dive bars, Hipsters and Tattoo parlors, great beer joints, avoiding the tourist spots. Food: None of the places mentioned seem anything but cliche. Check out Urban Spoon for the latest hot spots. Anne's Snack Shack, Fox Brothers, Vortex and others beckon from outside of the pompous Buckhead crowd that the site lists.

New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

You are looking at New Orleans , Louisiana in USA. The city has a population of 1319367 residents. It is located on -89.93 degrees longitude, and 29.95 latitude.

New Orleans , General info:

New Orleans is a major United States port city and the largest city in Louisiana. City is located in southeastern Louisiana along both the east and westbanks of the Mississippi River. Its status as a world-famous tourist destination is due in part to its architecture, music, cuisine, its annual Mardi Gras, and other celebrations and festivals. The city is often referred to as "The most unique city in America".

The city's primary airport is Louis Armstrong International Airport, located in the suburb of Kenner.

New Orleans , Cheap stuff:

The seafood is relatively cheap compared to many places.

New Orleans , Different stuff:

New Orleans is one of the most visited cities in America and has many major attractions, from the world-renowned Bourbon Street and the French Quarter's notorious nightlife, St. Charles Avenue (home of Tulane and Loyola Universities), and many stately 19th century mansions. Magazine Street, with its many historic antique shops, is also an area visited by many tourists. Also on St. Charles Avenue is the historic Pontchartrain Hotel.

Favorite tourist scenes in New Orleans include the French Quarter (known locally as "the Quarter" or Vieux Carré), which dates from the French and Spanish eras and is bounded by the Mississippi River, Rampart Street, Canal Street and Esplanade Avenue. The French Quarter contains many popular hotels, bars, and nightclubs, most notably around Bourbon Street.

New Orleans , Don't miss:

Mardi Gras or Carnival Time is the biggest celebration in New Orleans, Louisiana. The yearly festival includes numerous events throughout the city, and is known as the biggest free party on earth.

New Orleans , Food:

New Orleans is a culinary delight, but don't look too hard for healthy food; some would say don't look at all (although those demanding, say, vegetarian, vegan, or kosher food can with effort find it). Take advantage of what they prepare best here. New Orleans has good food for people on any type of budget.

New Orleans , Hotels:

The numerous hotels in the French Quarter and Central Business District are most centrally located for most tourists, but there are good accommodations in many other parts of town as well. Hotels on or near the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line in Uptown are popular with many visitors, and the smaller hotels and guest houses in neighborhoods like Marigny and Mid-City can provide an immersion in New Orleans away from the larger masses of tourists.

New Orleans , Safety:

During the height of the hurricane season, from July through October, be sure to check with the weather service before going to New Orleans, and if a large storm is threatening the Gulf Coast, consider a change of plans. Following the widespread displacement of people, destruction of property, and general disruption of city services following Katrina, the city has been experiencing a spike in violent crime, even increasing from 2006 to 2007. The majority of this is away from the parts of town of interest to most visitors, but no part is as safe as it once was.

Looking for drugs or illegal activities can expose you to danger; if someone you just met is trying to lure you into a strange part of town for something decadent, assume you're probably being set up for a robbery. It's the same with any city, be smart and keep your wits about you.
