NEW ORLEANS Throughout the slow, steamy months of August and September, New Orleanians can enjoy generous discounts and savings while exploring the city’s cultural attractions and its diverse dining scene. New Orleans & Company, a local marketing agency, will once again host its two annual summer campaigns – Stay & Play and COOLinary New Orleans Restaurant Month. Besides providing a more affordable way for locals to experience the city, both campaigns promote the businesses that make the Big Easy a beloved destination.

Stay & Play (August 1 through September 30)previously known as Be a Tourist in Your Own Hometown, offers more than 60 deals and discounted rates on hotels, attractions, tours, and dining options, among other amenities. The Stay & Play website even includes sample itineraries. For a chance to win a coveted staycation package, followers of the Instagram account, @VisitNewOrleans, should tag #StayAndPlayNOLA on images showcasing their summer staycations and outings around the city.

The 15th annual COOLinary New Orleans Restaurant Month (August 1 through August 31) returns this summer, offering special two- and three-course lunch menus for $20 or less, and three-course dinner and brunch menus for $39 or less, at more than 100 premiere restaurants across the city. A comprehensive list of participating eateries, along with a link to their menus, is listed below.

“New Orleans & Company is committed to nourishing and sustaining the incomparable culture that attracts millions of visitors each year. The Stay & Play and COOLinary campaigns give locals the opportunity to experience the top-tier hotels, restaurants, attractions, tours and museums that draw visitors to New Orleans each year,” said Stephen Perry, president and CEO of New Orleans & Company. “The summer months are the perfect time for Louisiana residents to rediscover New Orleans’ authentic spirit and to fall in love with our hometown again.”

During New Orleans Museum Month, August 1 through August 31, possessing a membership to one museum grants individuals complimentary access to all participating museums. Details of local participating museums can be found here.
