365 New Orleans: The Traveler Broads


365 New Orleans is focused on local artists and businesses. Every single day, for one year, a new person or place will be highlighted. Follow along on Instagram: @365NewOrleans 


The Traveler Broads is a New Orleans-based globetrotting duo known on their passports as Jessica Fender and Kerry Maloney. (But just call them Fender and Maloney.) Through their blog, journalism, and printed guides, they focus on giving visitors a glimpse of authentic New Orleans and feel strongly that anyone – any age, size, gender, color or ability – should get to experience the wonders of travel.

After spending award-winning careers in newspaper writing and photography, the longtime buds focus on finding meaningful travel experiences throughout the region and the world that benefit locals and travelers alike.



1. What products and services do you offer? 

We provide travel entertainment, insider insight and physical maps and guides celebrating the locals’ New Orleans – the things you won’t find on TripAdvisor. Traveling as journalists is a privileged position. We love giving our readers and followers the same type of behind-the-scenes access we get. And if we can make fun of ourselves and each other while doing it? All the better.  


2. How long have you been in business? 

The Traveler Broads were born at a Las Vegas bar in 2016. Fender already wrote about travel for a living. Maloney’s early midlife crisis got her thinking more globally. Like anyone launching anything these days, we started an Instagram account and things grew from there.


3. How do people find you online? 

Find us on Instagram @travelerbroads, on Facebook @travelerbroads and — of course — on our blog, TravelerBroads.com. Our most recent endeavors – the French Quarter Off the Record Guide and our Interactive Field Guide to Mardi Gras – are available at local retailers and online here.


4. What is lesser known about your business that you wish more people knew? 

We’re here to promote New Orleans! And we love, love, LOVE working with local businesses to create guides, maps and other materials to get the word out about how great this city really is. Our goal is to promote you! Whether it’s an Instagram takeover or a full-on physical product, get in touch!


5. Lagniappe Info. 

Collectively, we’ve visited every U.S. state, more than 50 countries and all but one continent. Speaking of which, anybody has a couch on Antarctica we can crash on?
