New Orleans, Louisiana


New Orleans Travel Guide

Alright NOLA, we’ve gotta hand it to you. You were a pretty great city. The whole city has such wonderful food, culture, and not to mention music. Aspen joined us for the ride and we had a great time taking him around the Big Easy! He even had a few "celebrity sightings", which was pretty amazing and hilarious all at the same time.

New Orleans is one of those cities that you really need to dig in to enjoy. It has a stereotype of being this grungy party city, which in all honesty Bourbon street is, but the rest of the city couldn't be more soulful. It may be the only city we've visited in the USA that you don't feel like you are still in North America, if you close your eyes and listen, it feels like you could be in Europe.

Stay

Our Airbnb

We stayed at the sweetest couples home in the perfect location. They have a few different set ups, a downstairs apartment and a shotgun house next door. They are both decorated so lovely!

Here’s the link to the first house which is a shotgun style and just so lovely!

Here’s the link to the second one!

Cafe Amelie - This is a NOLA classic and such a fun spot. We went here for brunch and sat outside on the patio. 

Three Muses - This place was on a crazy busy street but then when we walked in it was as if we had transported back in time. . Be sure to make reservations here.

Elisabeth's - A down right good cookin spot. Their bloody Mary's are someting else and their breakfast was super southern...praline bacon?

Satsuma - This was the last little breakfast spot that we went to on the morning that we left. It was tucked into a neighborhood (The one on Dauphine Street) and was super quaint and cute. 

Cafe Du Monde - Nough Said. You just have to.

Eat

 

 

District - For coffee and donuts.

Bacchanal - This is such a cool spot (Hunters favorite). You walk in and pick out your own wine and cheeses, then you go find a table outside and listen to music for hours. This is a spot you don't want to miss out on!

Cavan - Great happy hour and the interior is spot on...they have pink velvet booths, whats not to love? We wanted to go here for dinner but we just ran out of time.
