    If you like old Antebellum mansions, this is the place to go see them. Just walk and they are everywhere! Beautiful gardens, and incredible architecture. Well worth taking the time to visit.

    This is one of the first places my BFF and I stopped to when we first made it into NOLA. Although parking is NOT the greatest here, walk, take a taxi or an Uber, it's still a beautiful place to visit.

    great place to shop and eat, but like many of our large cities, the homeless seemed to have taken over.

    Been a few times, always the same, great vibe and a great city. Huge contrasts between the rich and poor, very sad to see in some places. Stepping over a body to cross canal street, not too sure if he was breathing or not, no one seems to give a toss. Took the wife this time, she found the local drink called a purple hurricane. Sold on a takeaway basis by street venders .Tasted like fruit juice, but has between 12 and 18 measures of spirits. I had beer. Two of these and she was gone. Couldn’t remember the night . Music and bands play all night as do local kids with upturned buckets, drumming away. Lovely for a visit , stay near the french quarter or you will be murdered. Best hotel for a pit of piece and away from the noise it called “ the b” on canal street

    My wife and I visited Preservation Hall for a Sunday afternoon show by the Legacy Band. There were 5 well-experienced musicians playing traditional jazz. All were masters of their craft. The played roughly 45 or 50 minutes, and were fabulous.

    I took my crew along with my nieces,nephews and a friend of my son. We visited on a Saturday afternoon. There is ample parking however keep it mind that the zoo becomes very crowded on the weekend making parking difficult.

    Price affordable however if you are New Orleans resident you can obtain a culture pass and visit for free.

    The zoo is bigger than you think. Wear comfortable shoes. There is a reptile section, there are a number of gift shops,there are restaurants for you to grab a bite to eat .

    There was also a sno cone truck which came in handy due to NOLA humid weather.

    Typical zoo animals only thing special to me was the albino alligator.

    Overall great visit kids loved it .

    My BFF and I visited this warehouse museum using our GoCity passes. I was completely surprised about everything we found and learned about Mardi Gras. The history, the Krewes and everything else in between. I absolutely adored the statues they were creating right in front of us. It's a little out of the way, but they do offer a shuttle from several areas around the quarter. Be sure to make this one of your stops!

    Second time in New Orleans for my bachelor/bachelorette party and some of us decided to do a cemetery tour. It was a hot one per usual but our tour guide Zelda practically made me forget. She liked my sunglasses too. Turns out we had the same hat except I left that one at home. Anyway she was incredible-very entertaining and knowledgeable. She also went a bit overtime so you definitely got your moneys worth. She suggested oyster creole house for oysters instead of Drago’s that we were on our way to-said they were better and boy was she right!! Thanks again for the great tour and food suggestions!!

    Excellent source of transpiration around the city. Go to the park, colleges, zoo, cemeteries and the restaurants out by Oak Street. Download the app (RTA) and purchase tickets. That way you won't have to stand in line to get on the streetcar. Just show the driver you pass on our phone. Senion rates! 80 cents for 24 hours, but normal rate are also inexpensive $1.25.

    For this part of the world, it's quite grand. An imposing building with interesting features. Interior is very French influenced, especially the stained glass. Definitely worth a peek inside,

    You can learn more about NOLA's history & music here. It's quiet & cool and sometimes there's a band playing in the courtyard.

    An interesting street in the French Quarter. A wide variety of bars, souvenir shops, etc. Somewhat of a typical FQ street.
