I'm not sure how to even respond to this....I guess the most gracious thing to say is do a forum search under "trip report" and get some ideas.

I cant believe you live in the next state ad know so little about New Orleans. Go meet the genuine people of N.O. and I guarentee you will fall in love with the place. By the way it is a great music scene (not just decent)

Other than food and music, what would you do in ANY city? Shop, sightsee and relax. You can do all those things VERY WELL in New Orleans, which has consistently been ranked as one of the top cities for visitors in this country.

Shop: Royal St, Magazine St, Canal Place/Riverwalk, side streets of the Quarter, French Market, Julia Street galleries, etc.

Sights: Aquarium of the Americas (w/ IMAX), riverboats, the ENTIRE French Quarter, Garden District, Uptown/Universities, the National World War 2 Museum, NO Museum of Art, Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Superdome, swamps teeming with wildlife, plantations, etc.

Maybe the food, music and culture options in Texas are so numerous that he should just stay there......

ChipperTex - There are a number of resources on this site including the list to the left here, try New Orleans overview and attractions buttons. You might pick up a frommer or fodor guide on New Orleans at your library, good information. You will find New Orleans is a unique cultural mix particurlary in the US, a blend of African, French Arcadian, Spanish, Southern, even Italian and Irish cultures, a rich stew. Look into it; this type of unique cultural is disappearing all to qucikly in the corperate homogenazation and general "dumming" that is our country today.

Thoughts of the posters can be understood but we are better off lighting candles instead of bemoaning darkness.

New Orleans is unlike any other city that I've been to. There is so much to see. The street preformers, the art (everywhere), the french market, D-day Museum, the zoo, Mardi Gras world, Bourbon St, Royal St, the Casino, the history, and the list goes on. Everything is in easy walking distance. It's my favorite place to go to shop, relax or whatever.
