New Orleans was named the No. 2 city in the U.S. and Canada in the Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best Awards 2015” readers’ survey.

Writes T+L:  “A decade after Katrina, New Orleans hasn’t just rebuilt and regrouped, it’s become a new kind of place altogether—one where dreamers and doers of every stripe are bringing the city back.”
