Christmas In New Orleans

A December 2004 trip to New Orleans by Dallen

Quote: Christmas Time in New Orleans -- The Christmas season delivers a kaleidoscope of colorful Christmas lights, a connoisseur’s bargain with the "Reveillon Dinners" for the best unique gifts.

Christmas In New Orleans


Sing Christmas carols at night in Jackson Square; go to a connoisseur’s bargain with the "Reveillon Dinners" offered by most of New Orleans’s best restaurants; travel down St. Charles Avenue by old-time street car to see the beautiful Christmas lights of the old mansions in the Garden District and at the city park.

Quick Tips:

Best Way To Get Around:

Leave your car when you travel through the French Quarter, or go by horse-drawn carriages on Royal and Bourbon Streets and around Jackson Square.
Wonderful facilities, with our own patio and a large studio, a small partial kitchen and separate bedroom with fold-out sofa that handles up to four people. Parking is located four blocks away. Facility is very secure, with a staff who is responsive and helpful to customers.

Wonderful "Reveillon Dinner" with crab cakes, alligator, and turtle soup (very tasty), tender steak stuffed with shrimp and crabmeat, and a creme brulee to die for.
