Win a pair of flights to The Big Easy - New Orleans

 

New Orleans is known as The Big Easy for two reasons: it's a big place, and everyone is really easy-going.

It's one of America's most glamorous, laid-back and fun-loving cities, famous for its jazz, its shellfish and its permanent party atmosphere. Beyond that, the city is justifiably well known for the unique architecture in its renowned French Quarter - most of which was actually built under Spanish rule - and its annual Mardi Gras festivities, which many believe represent the best street parties in the world.

Now The Independent has teamed up with Travelbag.co.uk to offer our readers the chance to experience the city themselves. One lucky winner and a friend will enjoy a pair of flights to New Orleans. To enter, simply complete the form below.
