There’s no question that New Orleans is one of the most intoxicating destinations in the US – and the city’s spicy Creole cuisine undoubtedly plays a big role in this. From fancy restaurants that give you bibs for their splatter-everywhere BBQ shrimp sauce to dive bars serving fried chicken and jambalaya, with beignets
and po’ boys in between, there’s few places that will leave you so happily stuffed by the end of your trip.
The craft beer scene has really exploded in the US in recent years, but with over 65 breweries – more than any other city in the world – Portland is undoubtedly the
destination for beer lovers. The city’s dedication to beer can be seen in its “brew ‘n’ view” cinemas where you can sample local ales alongside great food and the latest films. If you’d rather enjoy a drink in more traditional surroundings, then head to one of the many bars – in summer, the patio bars are the place to head.
