Planning a Trip to New Orleans

22 Apr


"New Orleans"

We recently did a road trip to New Orleans. So, for you’all amazing folks out there searching for info here are some real Quick facts:

  • New Orleans is a major US port famous for its “French Creole Architecture.”
  • Also popularly known as the birthplace of Jazz music and for the celebration of annual Mardi Gras. Needless to say, the people are nice and friendly – cheers to the southern hospitality 🙂


Things to do in New Orleans:

  • The Jackson Square 

Visit here for the Architecture, lively chaos, The artists, restaurants, museums and local markets. Don’t forget to carry your flip-flops or comfortable flats because it is a LONG stroll.

St Louis Cathedral is nested in the heart of Jackson Square. Outside you will see..Horse drawn fancy carriages. Come as you are, do what you love seems to be the mindset here.

Local artists and musicians, street painters, local markets and french architecture makes the atmosphere very historic

  • Indulge in French Coffee – Do visit Cafe du Monde 
"Cafe Du Monde"

Across the street from St Louis Cathedral – Cafe Du Monde is open 24 hours!! Check-in here for an awesome French doughnuts & coffee experience. Yes, they are high cal but I tell ya, they are so freaking worth it!!

  •  Bourbon Street 

For Nightlife, check out the Bourbon Street for the quirky bars and pubs it has to offer. Despite the As-is No frills state – Bourbon attracts truck loads of visitors from all over the world!

The Bars are alive day and night.You can walk with your drink up and down the street 😉

  • The StreetCars
These cute little trains take your mind back to a time when life was slower and more tranquil and they sure are the cheapest transportation in town

    Having just returned from The Big Easy a couple of weeks ago, I enjoyed seeing your lovely tour and photos. I have been posting my photos since my return and still have more to go! The technical part of your blog is over my head, but enjoy the other posts immensely. You have a very diverse space here. Nice. Margie
