Living in the New New Orleans
Salty on All Sides as Airbnb Legalization Changes Flavor of NOLA Tourism
In 2015, a record-setting 9.78 million visitors travelled to the Crescent City, contributing over seven billion dollars to the New Orleans economy.

Following many months of public forums, the oft-debated series of city ordinances are now in place.
