They say New Orleans is a world of it's own, and I agree! A funky, cool, unique world filled with rich history and resilient people. My husband and I were so excited to see what New Orleans had in store for us when we visited. I am a history lover and I was enthralled with the amazing history of this town. One of our favorite activities while we were away was a horse and buggy tour of the city! We loved it so much we ended up doing 2 different tours this way. Most horse and buggy tours begin at historic Jackson Square. One of the main attractions while on the tour are the cemeteries.
As weird as it sounds, the cemeteries in New Orleans are beautiful and filed with cool stories and some amazing history. Architecture in New Orleans is also quite beautiful. I loved walking through the streets of the French Quarter looking at the homes and wishing I could peek inside!
New Orleans has a beat of it's own. Music is everywhere, literally everywhere. After all, this is the birthplace of Jazz, the city that brought us Fats Domino, Harry Connick Jr and so many more! You can't walk down a street without a band playing or a song writer pouring out their soul. I think that's what I miss the most from our trip., the melodic sound of music playing all around me.
You can't take a trip to New Orleans and not talk about the food! Some of the best meals I have ever had where in New Orleans. Home to the Po Boy, the Muffaletta and Jambalaya! Don't go to New Orleans without a visit to Mothers and the ever popular Cafe Du Monde!
The people and places of New Orleans are so unique, so fun. The city has a heartbeat of it's own and once you visit a part of you stays there too.
I would love to help you plan a trip to New Orleans!
