Mid-City & Esplanade Ridge

Bayou_St_John_002Mid-City is the heart of New Orleans – literally and figuratively. Nestled between Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi River, Mid-City and the adjacent Esplanade Ridge include important landmarks such as the New Orleans Museum of Art, Bayou St. John, and the Fairgrounds Race Course where the annual Louisiana Jazz and Heritage Festival is held. Locals and visitors alike flock to Rock n’Bowl to enjoy two of America’s favorite pastimes and there’s even a Thursday afternoon Farmers Market.
