I am thinking about surprising my gf with a trip to Naw'leans for her birthday (she has always wanted to go). However, I have never been there during the month of October. Can you gimme some advice? Basically I am looking to know what the weather is like during the beginning of October? Are there any events during that time of year? Is it very "touristy" or are there lots of conventions in town or is it just dead?
Thanks in advance for your comments!
PS I am from South Florida so I know there is still a slight chance of hurricanes, so no need to add that in.
