Where do I start? Music, personality, history, great people and delicious food makes for an awesome weekend getaway. New Orleans offers such diverse attractions, it can be difficult to hone in on just a few aspects of travel. The city is immersed with historical landmarks, quaint boutiques and by far the best street talent in the US. A table at the Palace Café for a little people watching is highly recommended. The café features contemporary creole menu options for even the most sophisticated palate. We opted for the Werlein salad along with a wine selection which turned out to be a great lite dinner option. If schedule permits, only a few blocks away, catch a show at the Saenger Theater or see a live performance in the French Quarter.
Canal Street and French Quarter offers a plethora of entertainment and hospitality. The home grown talent as well as "the locals" serves as spatial to the city making it a unique and diverse milieu.
For “Off the beaten path type”, hotel tours come highly recommended. Make sure to check out the Queen and Crescent,
International House and St. James Hotels.
You cannot leave New Orleans without visiting the Garden District located on Magazine Street. The historical homes and local eateries capture the essence of the city and should be explored during your stay.
