Trip to New Orleans!

Trip to New Orleans!

N’awlins, NOLA, The Big Easy, The Birthplace of Jazz.  Good ol’ New Orleans, Louisiana.  Or as Stevie would call it “No Ortans”.

It was several months ago that I was perusing the web, just typing in random cities and checking flight prices (does anyone else do that??)  I can’t remember why New Orleans popped into my head, but it did.  And the flights were so insanely cheap that I booked right then and there!  Sure, it was with Spirit Air… (meh) but still!!  It was someplace we’d never been and sounded like so much fun.

It wasn’t even until a couple weeks before we left that I started digging in with research of the area and I was completely overwhelmed with things to do! I got a lot of help and recommendations from friends and Instagram and was blown away with all the city has to offer. There was no way we could squeeze it all into 3.5 days.  But we were going to try.

We arrived to our hotel late on Friday evening and after a long day of travel, we really had to rally to get ourselves ready and out the door.  But once we were out and enjoying ourselves, it all felt too good to be true.

Everything from the yummy food and drinks to the incredible live music and just the overall energy of the city was so special to experience.  Everyone was friendly and the service was excellent.

I won’t overwhelm you with all the details of our trip just yet — because I’d love to put together a travel guide, so to speak, that would include our accommodations, packing list, and favorite restaurants.  I know, in all my spare time.  It honestly will only scratch the surface of all the possibilities in the area, but might be a fun little peek into the city.

And while we’re on the topic of city guides, is that something you guys would like to see more of?  Including places we go locally?  Maybe even some videos?

Just toying with some ideas.

loves,

  1. I have ALWAYS wanted to go to New Orleans (ever since I saw Double Jeapordy ha!)! It looks like a city with so much culture. It’s too bad it was so cold for you guys though!

    1. it was REALLY cold, but we still loved it. hope you get to go sometime, it’s a great little city! <3

  2. Ah, Nawlins. I love that city. I went for NYE a few years before Katrina and it was lovely. The people were so genuine and all the men (gay or straight) bought my drinks that night. Oh, and I forgot about the most amazing prawns and oysters I ate while listening to the best jazz music I had ever heard. I have to say, it’s one of my favorite American cities.

  3. So glad you enjoyed your travels to New Orleans. I live about 1.5 hours from NOLA & enjoy quick trips to the city. Yes, travel guides are a super idea.

    I’ll be in LA over Mardi Gras in a few weeks, and travel tips are welcomed.

  4. Very interested in the New Orleans travel guide! We are going there in three weeks, also for the first time.So excited about it!

    1. Oh my gosh I’ll have to send you an email if I don’t get it posted soon! We had some really great recommendations! 🙂
