LAURA’S TRIP TO NEW ORLEANS, LOUISANA, US.
3 NIGHTS/1 STOP
A vibrant city, full of culinary delights and jazz on every corner
New Orleans, LA (NOLA) is a fascinating multicultural city, rich in history. Famous for its great culinary scene as well as its exciting musical atmosphere, NOLA has plenty to offer. Heavily influenced by successive waves of colonization (French, Spanish) and by its multicultural inhabitants, the city is a fascinating example of a melting pot. If you are interested in architecture, history, food and music, NOLA is the place for your next girlfriends’ trip or for a romantic escape. This can also be a fun trip with teenagers. Less recommended with little kids.

GOOD TO KNOW
We would recommend staying in the French quarter for your first visit. The W Hotel is a good option. If you want something quieter, the business district is the up and coming area to discover.
NO CAR REQUIRED unless you want to get out of the city to visit a plantation. This is the city to do your daily 10.000 steps ?
Be ready to splurge on restaurants.
The garden district is also very beautiful, might be an option if you travel with younger kids.
A must see: the rotating bar of the Monteleone hotel where Truman Capote used to stay during his visits to his hometown NOLA.
Instead of Bourbon street, Laura really enjoyed Royal street with a lot of art galleries, antiques and fashion stores.
