The Big Easy- on the inside!

Overview

Quote:
Go to the French Quarter, walk down the streets of Decatur and Bourbon and soak all the culture up. Then see a play at Le Petit Theatre or Saenger. Afterwards- go to OZ and live the crazy life!

Quick Tips:

Plan your travel in advance. Look at a calendar. There are always festivals, parades in New Orleans...if you want to visit during one- be ready for the extreme hotel visits. Otherwise, avoid them and stay at great places for reasonable prices.

Best Way To Get Around:

In the French quarter- walking. DEFINITELY WALKING, maybe a brief ride on the streetcar!

735 is full of energy and fun. With drag queens at the entrance, most tourists walk on by- but don't! What great place! A room with techno and one with other music! With a balcony! Don't miss.

Amazing. Days of music, fun and food! It's very hot this time of year in new orleans- but definitely worth it. Every year there are different performers but the favorites stay- including- Neville brothers, Lenny Kravitz, Ani Difranco, Better than Ezra! You can't miss the Jazz Fest. It's too great!
