America's Best Music Cities

New Orleans, Louisiana

Alex Demyan / NewOrleansOnline.com

#1 New Orleans

The birthplace of jazz wins the AFC survey for its legendary music scene, which includes blues, reggae, zydeco, and the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra. You’ll find music everywhere: on Bourbon Street, of course, as well as nontouristed areas such as Riverbend or Frenchman Street. Music also goes great with the other things that AFC readers love about the Crescent City: it ranks No. 1 for its singles scene, cafés, wild weekend potential, and people-watching.
